Ensemble Composers

Notes & Reviews:

The official titles of the works performed here are not helpful: what they conceal are the most extraordinary sound-worlds from two composers at the vanguard of the contemporary Polish music scene, and the magicians of the Royal String Quartet summon from their instruments sounds of collective and individual wonder. This is music to grab the attention of its audience - whether willing or not - and it will leave listeners emphatically having chosen a side of the fence.

American Record Guide, July/August 2015
The Royal Quartet plays with polish and is recorded with a fine dynamic range. If you think you'd like this kind of music, go for it.
