DVORAK: String Quartet in A-flat Major, Op. 105; String Quintet in E-flat Major, Op. 97 – Takacs Quartet/ Lawrence Power, viola – Hyperion CDA68142, 64:59 (9/29/17) 



The pairing of the Takács Quartet and viola player Lawrence Power has already

proved a winning one in Brahms and the results are no less seductive in Dvořák,

with a recording that brings them up close and personal.
