Notes & Reviews:

The Belcea Quartet is one of the world's leading chamber music ensembles, having won many international accolades since its establishment in 1994. With the three string quartets by Benjamin Britten, the musicians have rediscovered a gem of 20th c. chamber music. The String Quartets nos. 1, 2 and 3 were written over a period of 34 years; the third was Britten's last major work, composed in 1975, one year before his death. Recorded at Studio Davout, Paris in June 2014. "... this new set by the outstanding Belcea Quartet bids fair to become the recording of choice..." (The Sunday Times)
