Notes & Reviews:

This third album in the Wieniawski Quartet's much-admired traversal of the complete Krzystof Meyer String Quartets includes his most recent, No.13.

Gapplegate Classical-Modern Music Review
These are great abstract constructions, at once intimate and multivalent.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
Quartet 7 (1985) is in one 14-minute movement. The music is through composed. The effect of the piece is impressive. Quartet 10 (1994) is in four movements. The overall scheme mirrors the usual classical string quartet plan: slow introduction and fast music and a lively virtuosic, Beethovenian finale titled 'La Malinconia'. Quartet 13 (2010) is in five continuous movements.
