Composers

Notes & Reviews:

"Kurt Weill's slender output of chamber music dates from his apprentice years, well before he found his true mtier in musical theatre. Not surprisingly, perhaps, there are precious few hints of the composer's more familiar ironic vein in these quartets. But both works are well worth hearing, and are presented here in superbly committed performances..." ***** -BBC Music
