The Pavăo Quartet is delighted to have at last recorded some of Carlo Martelli’s original chamber music, since it was a collection of his wonderfully inventive arrangements of ‘The Great American Songbook’ that launched their recording career.

Martelli studied with William Lloyd Webber and Ralph Vaughan Williams at the Royal College of Music. His Symphony was premiered by the London Symphony Orchestra in the Royal Festival Hall and was released in 2011.

Throughout the 1950s he produced a series of well-crafted compositions, among which may be numbered the two string quartets and Terzetto for two violins and viola, featured on this disc.

Martelli’s String Quartet no.2 has been widely played and critically acclaimed. Its recorded debut presented here is particularly welcome and should serve to win the work many new admirers.
