Notes & Reviews:

Founded in 2010 by cellist Niklas Schmidt, "Fontenay Classics International" stands for fine chamber music, superior sound and exquisite design. FCI presents both young ensembles as well as recordings of Mr. Schmidt himself. The Cavaleri Quartet trained at the RCM, London. Its mentors include the Alban Berg, Brodsky and Chilingirian Quartets. Winning 1st prize as well as the Mendelssohn Award of the Oscar and Vera Ritter Foundation at the ICMC Hamburg, 2012 marks the Cavaleri Quartet's most recent career success. Here they present two quartets perched between tradition and departure.
