The amazon blurb and the lead review both mention the "youthful French charm" of the Quatuor Ebene, which sounds silly to me. the ensemble made a breakthrough in England by winning a BBC Young Generation award, so the youthful part is right. When I heard them in concert, I got the same impression that I get here in this Brahms program. The first violinist dominates the balance, with the other three members, especially the cello, acting as subordinate voices.The Ebene sound is bright and moves down form the top, as opposed to being built up from the cello line. vibrato is often nearly absent, and there's an edge to their attack. If all of that sounds French, I won't object, but to my ears the effect is precise and modern rather than charming.

The interpretation of Quartet no. 1 isn't as robust and aggressive as from the Alban Berg Qt. or as romantic as the Amadeus. The Ebene try to make Brahms's thick textures lighter, and they find a wide variety of moods. This adds interest from event to event, although at the cost of making the first movement a bit choppy. The Romanze is elegantly done, with close voicing and real assurance in handling the long phrases. Thee's a strong sense of mood from keeping the dynamics soft and hushed. When the same mood is carried over into the Scherzo, it sounds artificial to me - is this music meant to be so soft and inward, and paced so carefully? The finale is vigorously attacked and straightforward except for moments of inwardness that imitate the earlier movements - I suppose this is the Ebene's major idea.

In the F minor Piano Quintet, the Ebene and Japanese pianist Akiko Yamamoto have one distinct advantage over half a dozen illustrious predecessors, the recorded sound.

I have several recordings of this quartet, and this one is refreshingly new. One to listen to over and over.

The Quatour Ebene is truly a unique quartet. Beyond their youthful French charm, the quartet has a distinctive musical approach and supreme technique. I find that their newest release showcases just that. I like how the quartet takes on the challenge of performing a work from the German composer Johannes Brahms. The quartet plays on a sensational technical level with each note having its own expressivity. And while the quartet is technically astute, the overall sound is lush, colorful and well-rounded. What a sensational disc!
