Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Two of ECM New Series' leading ensembles, the Rosamunde Quartet and the Hilliard Ensemble, join forces to perform music of Boris Yoffe, in a highly attractive album which is also a label debut for the composer. Yoffe's music is from his vast and unique 'Book of Quartets', an ever expanding collection, with the eight musicians making their selection from pieces completed between 2005 and 2009. As Paul Griffiths writes in the liner notes, "One listens here into infinity", a work without end. This is composition as a diary, an unfolding, poetic, musical mediation, a gentle river of sound.
