"[…]The composer would have been delighted with this interpretation of his octet: in the surround sound of the DVD Audio the listener sits in the middle of the eight musicians, who are placed around him or her in the form of four string trios. But it is not only the sound that we find so good: above all it is the pulsating music-making of the Auryn and the Minguet Quartets which is so enthralling. The overflowing melody, the wealth of colour, the swing and bounce of the music are quite remarkable. Strong musical fire burns in this interpretation…" (pizzicato)
"(…) This has been my personal favorite Mendelssohn work most of my life. My favorite performance has been an old mono one from Toscanini in an expanded arrangement but the superb playing and in-the-room realism of this multichannel effort could easily replace that old classic in my estimation. The quartet is also exquisite, full of lovely tunes and perfect proportions." (Audiophile Audition)

Audiophile Audition (08/01/2002):

"The spatial layout for this Tacet disc is even more unusual than the Mozart flute quartets. Producer Andreas Spreer reports that he always felt stereo recordings of string octets missed the feeling a performer in the octet has of being part of a large orchestra. more...

Répertoire (01/01/2002):

"II est intéressant de passer tout de suite après un quintette vu par le labet Tacct: le D. 956 de Schubert. Là le parti pris, déjà défendu précédemment, est de faire du DVD-Audio multicanal un véritable véhicule pour des expérience sonores nouvelles. more...

HiFi Forum (01/01/2002):

Klang mit neuen Perspektiven
Das Klassik-Label Tacet endeckt via Audio-DVD neue Klangperspektiven für Zuhörer und Musikproduzenten. In einer Sondervorführung zeigte Tonmeister und Label-Chef Andreas Spreer der Fono Forum-Redaktion, welche kreativen Möglichkeiten die Mehrkanal-Technik bietet.
Manch einer wird sagen: Wurde auch Zeit, dass sich seriöse Musikproduzenten mit der ästhetischen Neuordnung für Mehrkanalaufnahmen auseinandersetzen! Die meist berechtigte Skespsis bezüglich der oft als überflüssig oder sogar unsinnig empfundenen Rundum-Klänge ist unter audiophilen Musikfans weit verbreitet. more...
