Notes & Reviews:

This premiere recording of John McCabe's latest three String Quartets is being released to celebrate the composer's sixtieth birthday on April 21. These most interesting works span a compositional period of ten years. They are quite accesible works, certain to please any lover of modern string quartets.

'Music of enormous integrity and genuine staying power from an underrated British master, impeccably realised on this occasion by artists and production crew alike. All in all, a very strong recommendation' (Gramophone)

'A magnificent 60th-birthday offering to a fine composer' (Gramophone)
