Reviews: 

Lionel Salter's Gramophone review from November 1992:

"A hearing of these discs gives rise to the uneasy suspicion that the musical world may have been barking up the wrong tree by devoting so much attention to the exotic eccentricities of Villa-Lobos's series of Bachianas brasileiras and Choros (which provide fertile talking-points) rather than to the more 'civilized', less loosely rhapsodic, more structured and more abstract music of his string quartets."
