On this new recording the Leipzig String Quartet develops unrivaled expressive depth. Sibelius composed his String Quartet, JS183 in 1889 as an examination piece and received the highest praise for it.

He leaves classical forms far behind him in the Voces intimae composed twenty years later. An Adagio of unprecedented expressivity occupies the centre of this work comprising five movements.

Just listen to the exuberant, wilder-than-wild finale movements forming the greatest possible contrast to the initial loneliness and solitude! The Leipzig musicians offer a welcome addition to the repertoire with the early Quartet in A minor and make us eager to hear more chamber music by this Nordic symphonist.
