Notes & Reviews:

The Danel Quartet is one of the foremost young ensembles in Europe and great champions of contemporary music. Here they perform new works by four composers with strong present or recent connections to the city of Manchester, England and specifically the University. This is rich and rewarding music for the curious and adventurous and unlike much new music also has a strong Romantic element in its descriptive impressionism of themes from nature and life.
