Notes & Reviews:

This important new release is ideally timed to celebrate composer John Joubert's 85th birthday, which he celebrated in March. It was exactly five years ago, in celebration of Joubert's 80th birthday, that SOMM brought out a well-filled double-CD set of music by John Joubert that included a world premiere of his Second String Quartet with the Brodsky Quartet, reissued on this disc as a companion piece to the world premiere recordings of Joubert's Quartets 1 & 3, again with the same artists, who have now enthusiastically incorporated them into their concert repertoire.

Sunday Telegraph
The Brodskys' playing ... is full of vitality and musical insights into a profound Work.

BBC Music Magazine
Pride of place goes to Joubert's 1977 Second Quartet, an impressive piece played with great conviction by the Brodsky Quartet.

Expedition Audio Recommended
.... For those who are drawn to the genre, Joubert’s quartets are very satisfying. There is a strange beauty and a complexity here that bears some very close and repeated listening. The Brodskys obviously had their hearts in this project and Somm provides excellent sound. If you appreciate the quartets of Shostakovich, you will likely enjoy Joubert’s quartets as well. ... read more ...
