Notes & Reviews:

"This is the third installment in Chandos's wonderful series of piano and chamber music by John Blackwood McEwen... His music is richly tonal, refined, and imaginative - as close to Faure as to such contemporaries as Bax or Ireland. The Chilingirians play marvelously, and Chandos's recording is splendid. This will reward anyone wanting to discover more of the treasures hidden away in our rich heritage of little-known-romantic-to-early-modern string quartets." - Lehman, ARG
