Notes & Reviews:

This is the sixth recording by the Doric String Quartet for Chandos Records, and the discography is going from strength to strength. The disc of Schumann's String Quartets, Op. 41 was 'Recording of the Month' simultaneously in BBC Music and Gramophone, and nominated for a Gramophone Award in the Chamber Music category in 2012.

American Record Guide, July/August 2013
Chausson had nearly finished the third movement of his quartet. D'Indy finished the movement and edited the piece. A fourth movement was planned. The Concert (the title is in French, and it means "concerto") is one of Chausson's mostrecorded pieces, with more than 15 listed in our Index.

BBC Music Magazine, April 2013
Violinist Jennifer Pike, pianist Tom Poster and the Doric String Quartet have done much more than scratch the surface of this piece...it is their handling of the gradually building tension in the slow movement, from disquiet to impassioned pleading via reflection and agitation, that marks out as an especially fine performance.

MusicWeb International, April 2013
[Pike and Poster] play superlatively - beautifully merging into the texture of the whole...The recorded sound is warm and resonant without being overwhelmingly lush...Anybody who is at all interested in late romantic chamber music should snap it up without delay.

Gramophone Magazine, May 2013
There are plenty of opportunities for Jennifer Pike to display her sinuous, tender tone, while Tom Poster reminds us yet again why he's so highly regarded as a chamber musician...A real front-runner for the Concert, and the most convincing of advocates for the more problematic String Quartet.
