Notes & Reviews:

"We have waited 65 years for a recording of Lennox Berkeley's Second String Quartet so it's particularly welcome in this admirable Chandos series... This fine performance brings out the best in what would be a landmark in British chamber music if only it were better known... In the quintet 'Abstract Mirror' there's a special richness about the two cellos throughout and the parallel sixths at the opening: the dramatic contrasts here and in 'Magnetic Field' are consistently eloquent and both pieces repay repeated hearing. These well recorded performances are a fine demonstration of the Chilingirians' exceptional panache and show total sympathy throughout." -Gramophone
