Notes & Reviews:

The music on this CD confirms the special position of the composer Jorgen Jersild (1913-2004) in Danish music. It is captivating chamber music written over a half-century during which the composer underwent great musical development, but at the same time persisted in his own personal style - from the early works from the 1930s and 1940s to the later string quartet showing us a courageous, mature composer seeking out new musical areas.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
Jerslid's music shows a noticeable Gallic influence. It's a winsome charmer, lucid, airy and tuneful. The notes explain that the quartet has never been published and that this may well be its first ever performance. I still think this is well worth buying for the first 40 minutes of this superbly-played and very-well-recorded program.
