Notes & Reviews:

Britten composed three numbered string quartets of very differing moods. The Third, dating from 1975, is mainly of a gentle disposition, inspired by the beauty of Venice, and coming at the end of the composer's life.

International Record Review
well worth acquiring, for they exhibit an understanding of this by no means immediately comprehensible music... these two single CDs are strongly recommended...
