Notes & Reviews:

  • 'Into the Ravine' is the first release on Signum from the Carducci Quartet, one of the UK's most dynamic string quartets.
  • The quartet is joined by oboist Nicholas Daniel for three world premieres from well-established UK composers, and all written specially for them.
  • The Carducci quartet run their own festival and recording label, and are international competetion winners.

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
This attractive release from the wonderful Carducci Quartet includes a marvelous work by Michael Berkeley (son of Lennox), an oboe quintet subtitled Into the Ravine (after a painting by John Craxton). McCabe's Seventh Quartet, written for the Carduccis, also reveals a fresh, light-as-air melodic idiom; and its thoroughly classical form is ingeniously designed. Adrian Williams's Fourth Quartet, first performed in 2009, is more rhapsodic and suggests a neoromantic orientation. The sound is beautiful and the performances exquisite.

Gramophone Magazine, February 2014
The Carducci give superbly vivid and thoroughly prepared performances that catch the varied expressive characters of each work, combining with Nicholas Daniel to great effect. Signum's sound is excellent.
