Ensemble Composers

Notes & Reviews:

The Szymanowski Quartet, a BBC New Generation Artist in 2001, makes its commercial recording debut with three contrasting works that perfectly demonstrate these young instrumentalists' immense charisma and countless fine qualities, in the elegance of Franz Joseph Haydn to the rustic hues of Antonin Dvorak, and the folk-tinged neoclassicism of their Polish compatriot Grazyna Bacewicz who was a protTgT of the ensemble's namesake. What links these three very different works is that they were written by composers who knew the medium from the inside; all were performers in quartets at some point during their careers.
