Notes & Reviews:

"In short, the playing here is gorgeous, and the music no less rewarding. The Britten is his Op. 2, but is entirely typical of his early genius, while the Bliss is a major work full of that composer's bittersweet lyricism. Britten's Third Quartet is a moving and at times creepy work, which isn't surprising as it quotes from the definitely creepy opera Death in Venice... This is a very rewarding and enjoyable release." -Classics Today (10/9)
