Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"...The Sorrel Quartet with Ian Brown suggest an authentic note of fragility and the finale's ghostly echoes of palmier days are beautifully evocative... The Maggini [Quartet] alone provides direct competition by coupling the Quintet with the Quartet. The Sorrel is more demonstrative at the start of the Quartet, but later it is the Maggini that is the more urgent... you are unlikely to be dissatisfied with either of the fine accounts." ***** -BBC Music
