" ... In my opinion they are very talented, very keen to learn and develop their musical and technical abilities.

I found them very intelligent, fun to be with and of excellent character. They seem to be getting on with each other in a very harmonious way which is resulting in good public performances."

"... Though it has been only a couple of years after its establishment, Olten String Quartet is already one of the leading chamber music groups in Turkey. I have listened the group many times in concerts and also i have found the opportunity to play with them Shumann's Piano Quintett in some concerts. Thanks to their regular and serious rehearsals the group improves its musical language each day and i can recommend the group without hesitation for any international festival or regular concert serie."
