Notes & Reviews:

Vaughan Williams was able to establish his own distinctive musical voice relatively early in his career. While his "Phantasy Quintet" and G Minor Quartet, conceived before 1914, show contemporary French influence, they are immediately identifiable as his and display a characteristically beautiful serentiy still found in the A minor Quartet from the 1940's. The Maggini Quartet was honored with an "Editor's Choice Award" by Gramophone magazine for their recent Walton CD.
