Among Jon Leifs' 66 completed opus numbers, only five are original chamber works and these include the three quartets heard on this new Smekkleysa release. The first one was composed in 1939, the second between 1948-1951 and dedicated to his daughter following her early and tragic death, with the third one being inspired by the renowned artist El Greco.

Following 'Composer of the week' in December 2013 on Radio 3, Jon Leifs' profile has certainly been raised to new heights.
