SIR CHARLES VILLIERS STANFORD
Chamber Music Vol.2
String Quartets Nos. 3, 4 & 7
'All three of the works on this disc are premiere recordings, an astonishing state of affairs for what must surely be the most significant quartet cycle by any British composer before Frank Bridge. That alone makes this disc essential listening… They’re each worth hearing, and the Dante Quartet go at them with red-blooded gusto and an energy that’s clearly born from the thrill of discovery… SOMM and the Dantes have broken important new ground with impressive commitment.'
'...played with great élan and sensitivity by the excellent Dante Quartet'
