"המלחין רונן שפירא ניגן בפסנתר ולצדו ניגנו חברי רביעיית כנרת. בהפקה שהייתה חגיגה פסטיבלית."
(יוסי שיפמן. "אורפיאו הקורקטי ואורפיאו התיאטרלי" בכפר בלום- 2004 ).
Cellesche Zeitung, 1996
"There is a string quartet which is not yet very well known in Europe - but it performs on a level that we hear only from the very first guard of such ensembles - the Kineret quartet from Haifa." Homogenous sound so that the ensemble seems to be almost one instrument, technical masterly skill - timber sensibility never becomes an end in itself but is used only for means of expression. In addition this ensemble has to offer something special which has become very seldom today: their own unique character in sound and expression!
Cellesche Zeitung, 1998
For the world premiere of "Zettels Traum" - a composition for flute and string quartet by the Bremen composer Erwin Koch-Raphael, who gave an introduction to his work - the RANDLAGE ESCHEDE had invited international renowned musicians: the american flutist Karin Levine and the israeli Kineret Quartet. With amazing self confidence the musicians immersed into Koch Raphael's world of sounds so that time seemed to stand still. Enthusiastic applause for the composition and its performers.
Die Norddeutsche, 1996
The Kineret Quartet from Haifa performed in Schloss Schoenebeck with thrilling brilliance. In addition the quartet showed a stringent technical perfection that stands for their musical education in Moscow, Leningrad, Klausenburg, and Leipzig.
Stadt Oldenburg, Nordwest Zeitung, 1994
The audience was held under spell by exquisite sound - culture of the Kineret Quartet.
Weser Kurier, 1994
Aside from the "Bremen Music Fest" a string - quartet performance of amazing high quality could be heard. The Kineret - Quartet captivated its audience by the technical dexterity at all four stands, their precise and homogenous performance.
Achimer Zeitung, 1996
Shostakowitsch's quartet c minor op. 110 - composed under the impression of a visit to the bombed out city of Dresden, seemed to be written for the Kineret Quartet. This musical grieving was the absolute climax of this evening in its mature, intensive and also consoling interpretation. After the fading, dying pianissimo ending, the audience remained motionless for some minutes.
