Notes & Reviews:

Matthew Taylor's sense of musical architecture - extending the symphonic tradition of Sibelius and Nielsen into the modern age - can be felt in his chamber music no less than in his orchestral output. Though his String Quartets Nos. 5, 6 and 7 were written in close succession, they are fundamentally different in design and feeling.

American Record Guide, July/August 2013
Matthew Taylor's three string quartets are neo-classical in the sense that their three or four movements are titled by their Italian tempo designations. There is a (post)modern sensibility about the themes. It's clear that Taylor aims at accessibility.
