Since their foundation in 1991, the Quatuor Danel have been at the forefront of the international music scene, with important concert performances worldwide and a series of ground-breaking CD recordings winning many prestigious awards. They have become renowned for combining their bold, concentrated interpretations of classical quartets with an uncompromising commitment to the most progressive music of our own time. They succeeded the Lindsays as quartet-in-residence at the University of Manchester in 2005.

Here they present new compositions by four English composers associated with the University, two of whom (John Casken and Philip Grange) have already carved out an international reputation (and have previous Métier albums devoted to their work) and two of the younger generation (Camden Reeves and Richard Whalley) whose immediately distinctive styles will assure them a place among the most in-demand composers of tomorrow.
