“Light programming, like comedy, is serious business. Quartetto Gelato has the stuff. Dry humor and occasional clowning are part of the quartet’s arsenal, yet first, it meets the requisite virtues of skilled music-making. Its pleasure-giving is consistent.”
– Los Angeles Times
“Tasty Tunes, the quartet’s tenth album, is yet another celebration of all those signature qualities that make QG unique, exciting and wholly entertaining!”…”In what could be subtitled Mozart Meets Minnie the Moocher, Quartetto Gelato’s Tasty Tunes will leave a smile plastered on your face.”
– WholeNote, Sharna Searle
“Quartetto Gelato is a dazzling group whose musicians come from the background of classical music and which makes all kinds of music a carnival of humor and virtuosity.”
– Haitari.fi, Kimmo Mattila (Finnish Accordion Magazine)
