Notes & Reviews:

The Eybler Quartet was established to offer 21st Century works for string quartet an outlet for performance. For this newest recording the Eyblers have added clarinetist Jane Booth to explore the music of Johann Georg Heinrich Backofen, a clarinet virtuoso, composer and influential music theorist from the turn of the 19th Century.

Jane Booth is a specialist in the early clarinet and chalumeau. In addition to her work as Head of Historical Performance at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, London, she has pursued a busy international career, playing all over the world with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, Orchestre des Champs-Elysées, Tafelmusik, Gabrieli Consort, The Sixteen, La Petite Bande, and Anima Aeterna, Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra, London Handel Orchestra, London Classical Players, The Academy of Ancient Music among others. Her repertoire is vast and extends from the works of Handel, Telemann and Vivaldi through to Wagner, Mahler and Debussy - all on historically appropriate instruments.

The Eybler Quartet came together in late 2004 to explore the works of the first century of the string quartet, with a healthy attention to lesser known composers such as their namesake, Joseph Leopold Edler von Eybler. The group plays on instruments appropriate to the period of the music it performs.

Violinists Julia Wedman and Aisslinn Nosky, and violist Patrick G. Jordan, are all members of Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra; Julia and Aisslinn are also members of I FURIOSI Baroque Ensemble. Cellist Margaret Gay is much in demand as both a modern and period instrument player.
