Performer Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"The String Quartet is very early Maxwell Davies and is very ingratiating. Its slightly abandoned mood blends effectively with jazz influences, Bartok, and much else besides. It is magnificently played by the Ardittis in outstanding sound. Le jongleur de Notre Dame, a masque and a much later work, is a prime example of Davies's 'middle period'. The soundworld is captivating, with delicate tracery rather than effusively symphonic gestures...A thoroughly worthwhile issue." -Classic CD
