The quartet's performance was a spellbinding display of concentrated, fully-absorbed conviction.

Boston Globe March 2014

Half of what Arditti did here simply didn't seem physically possible. Apparently it is.

LA Times March 2014

The burden of time melted away as the Arditti Quartet led us through the intense viscerality of Lachenmann's musical language.

Toronto March 2014

Es war ein großer, ja sensationeller Konzertabend, der Maßstäbe setzte (it was a great, yes sensational concert evening which set new standards) ; Die Ardittis...agierten auf einem geradezu schwindelerregendem Spitzenniveau (The Ardittis performed at a dizzyingly top class level) ; ..das alles ließ einen mehr als einmal  den Atem anhalten vor Bewunderung ( The way they interpreted the music... took one's breath away more than once).

12.7.08 Darmstadt. Ferneyhough quartets 1-5

Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung  July 2008

The Arditti Quartet were spellbinding.

The Times July 2008

The Arditti played the six little pieces of Kurtag's Moments Musicaux with fabulous concentration, making every silence speak volumes, but then their command of every challenge this programme threw at them was astonishing.

The Guardian  January 2007

 
 

The world's pre-eminent contemporary music quartet.

The Guardian  April 2005

 
 

I don't think there is an ensemble alive that could play this program with the kind of uncompromising finesse and authority that the Arditti Quartet displayed on Saturday night. One could not ask for a richer, more erudite and yes, more passionate demonstration of what contemporary string quartet writing is all about, than this magnificently conceived evening. Four different works, all with the capacity to make even expert musicians sweat bullets, were served up about as perfectly as anyone can expect. These four musicians' collective intellectual background, technical command and interpretive confidence all combined to make an evening that might be a model of contemporary quartet performance.

Seen and Heard International Recital Review

Zankel Hall , New York City, December 4th, 2004

 
 

There is no more competant formation in this field in the whole globe

Badische Zeitung November 2004

 

As it has done for more than a quarter-century with astonishing
virtuosity and bravery, the Arditti Quartet continues to treat music as something of crucial importance and endless amazement.
LA Times May 2001

 
 

I’ve given up groping for fresh superlatives to describe the Arditti’s music-making. They are way beyond praise.                                   

Daily Telegraph November 1999

 
  The Arditti players manage to say more in a couple of bow strokes than some concerts communicate in total.                                          The Sunday Times February 1999
