Streichquartett der Staatskapelle Berlin - Verdi, Tchaikovsky, Puccini - American Record Guide

Two rarely heard Italian works for string quartet distinguish this release ... Puccini’s Crisantemi (Chrysanthemums) of 1890 is a remarkable work unlike any other that I know. It too is rarely played, but that is unjust. It has a character like film music accompanying an intimate, tragic scene where the characters bare their souls to each other.
