Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Krzysztof Meyer's intensely dramatic and eloquent string quartets stand at the centre of his achievements as a composer. The extremes of mood which characterize the Ninth Quartet contrast with the Eleventh Quartet, whose form recalls the single movement quartets of Shostakovich. The Twelfth Quartet is a richly expressive and forceful summation of the composer's contribution to this genre. The Wieniawski Quartet's recording of Meyer's Quartets Nos. 5, 6 and 8 (8.570776) was welcomed as an 'exciting issue of very stimulating music'. (MusicWeb International)

The WholeNote
"Intensely dramatic and eloquent," says the jewel case blurb in describing these works and they are exactly that. The recorded sound is excellent, the booklet notes adequate... At the bargain Naxos price, these discs are a terrific buy.
