Notes & Reviews:

Since its creation in 2004, the Alfama Quartet has made quite a breakthrough thanks to its subtlety, elegance, and dynamism. The four young members work under the guidance of the Danel Quartet, and have worked with Walter Levin (LaSalle Quartet), Rainer Schmidt (Hagen Quartet), Heime Muller (Artemis Quartet), and Eberhard Feltz. This new release is a sensitive and intelligent exploration of the quartet repertoire: gems signed by famous names ranging from Mendelssohn and Britten to Sibelius and Rachmaninov.
