Jeremy Eichler, The Boston Globe, on the Lydians' recording of Beethoven's late quartets: "These distinguished readings are full of subtlety, tonal refinement, and a sense of accumulated musical wisdom."

Anthony Tommasini, The New York Times, on the Lydians' recording of music by Harold Shapero: "All three works receive assured and engrossing performances."

Richard Dyer, The Boston Globe, on the Lydians' recording of quartets by Charles Ives: "This is one of the great string quartet recordings, catching the Lydian Quartet in its recent prime in music it feels in the marrow of its bones."

Mike Brownell, All Music Guide, on the Lydians' recording of John Harbison's first four string quartets: "The Lydian String Quartet, often recognized for its successful coupling of traditional repertoire as well as new compositions, is perfectly suited for Harbison's works."

Galen H. Brown,, on the Lydians' recording of Lee Hyla's String Quartet No. 4: "The disc starts with the Lydian String Quartet tearing into the opening notes of Hyla's String Quartet #4 (1999) as if it had insulted their mother."
