Notes & Reviews:

Following on from the release of their critically acclaimed recording of Reich's Different Trains on Signum, Britain's leading contemporary string ensemble, The Smith Quartet, perform the works of five diverse British composers. The music is inspired by the ancient English landscape, 9th century Irish poetry, 20th century human tragedy and the passing of friends.
