Notes & Reviews:

Following the critically acclaimed albums, 'Different Trains' and 'Ghost Stories', Signum is pleased to announce the release of The Smith Quartet's latest album, the complete string quartets by the world acclaimed composer, Philip Glass. Over a time span of 25 years, Glass completed 8 quartets (the 3 earliest were withdrawn) drawing on the influences of Bach to Shostakovich, as well as exterior musical sources: dance, theatre and film. Clear-cut, polished performances by The Smith Quartet give the listener an excellent taster of a quartet at the forefront of contemporary music.
