Ensemble Composers

Notes & Reviews:

MusicWeb International, 11th July 2013
Three quartets each being the composer's third is a neat idea...I found the disc an extremely interesting and beautiful one and the Signum, which I had not come across before, play each work with panache and a huge degree of obvious enthusiasm.

Gramophone Magazine, September 2013
A trio of characterful and accomplished 20th-century string quartets make a satisfyingly substantial programme of a kind now rare on the contemporary recording scene...the Signum Quartet respond with an almost fulsome warmth of tone - perhaps assuming some hidden romantic programme, a Bergian VerklSrte Nacht?

Notes & Reviews:
