Notes & Reviews:

The Edinburgh Quartet is Scotland's foremost exponent of new music; they have enjoyed a long relationship with Robert Crawford, who is surely Scotland's musical elder statesman. His three quartets are given characteristically vivid readings on this recording, offering a fascinating overview of Crawford's development over the last 40 years. The second in particular - with its inspired wit and infectious musicality - deserves far greater renown.
