"Es gibt eine Handvoll Ensembles, denen man wirklich blind vertrauen kann. Weil sie selbst die bekanntesten Partituren mit einer solchen Sorgfalt und firschen Neugierde lesen, als wäre es ihre Erstbegegnung. Dazu gehört neben dem Hagen- unbedingt auch das Artemis-Quartett, wie die Beethoven-Gesamtaufnahme eindrücklich belegt. Jede Folge wird da zu einer spannenden Entdeckungsreise ins nur scheinbar vertraute Terrain ... Da demonstriert das Ensemble einmal mehr seine große Bandbreite an dynamischen, farblichen und nicht zuletzt emotionalen Nuancen. Dass bei den Artemisianern wirklich jedes Detail genau austariert ist, zeigt sich auch in der Programmreihenfolge: Wenn das op. 135, Beethovens Schlusswort zur Gattung, nach dem Erstlingswerk op. 18, 3 erklingt, scheint das Anfangsmotiv des späten den Schluss des frühen Quartetts aufzugreifen. Der Kreis schließt sich. Und das blinde Vertrauen wurde nicht enttäuscht" (Rezension zur letzten CD dieser Gesamteinspielung; Fono Forum 07/ 2011). ECHO Klassik 2011
