Performer Ensemble Composers

Notes & Reviews:

The twin series of symphonies and string quartets stand at the centre of Krzysztof Meyer's achievement as one of the most renowned composers of our time. His mastery of the chamber medium is also revealed in the two works presented here. The Piano Quartet, Op. 112, heard here in its world premiere recording, is unusual in Meyer's output for its one-movement structure with several contrasting sections. Elegy, threnody and caprice co-exist in an intense interplay of great passion. In its scale and impact the Piano Quintet recalls similar such pieces dating back to Brahms.
