Notes & Reviews:

While Hill's first three string quartets were reminiscent of Dvorak and Tchaikovsky, these three demonstrate new directions. With the slow movement of 'Quartet No. 4' hinting at influences of Elgar, and 'Quartet No. 6' conceived in a kind of retro-classical idiom, 'Quartet No. 8' clearly marks the beginning of a new sound world, with hints of the musical language of the impressionists and a rather English sounding Finale. Hill's trademark slow movement gems remain a feature in all three quartets with the outer movements offering memorable melodies and much finesse in his string quartet writing.
