WorksString Quartets (6), op.20
On this second volume, the last three quartets of the set are performed by the Chiaroscuro Quartet, an ensemble formed in 2005 by the violinists Alina Ibragimova (Russia) and Pablo Hernán Benedí (Spain), the Swedish violist Emilie Hörnlund and cellist Claire Thirion from France. Dubbed ‘a trailblazer for the authentic performance of High Classical chamber music’ in Gramophone, the quartet plays on gut strings, and the previous instalment was singled out as a recommended disc by The Strad, whose reviewer described its contents as ‘period-instrument performances of the utmost subtlety and refinement’.
“Where they surpass those earlier ‘period’ performances is in the radiant refinement of their sound, and their suave sensitivity of phrasing…this new CD offers a fascinating range of ‘alternative’ insights and nuances” - **** BBC Music Magazine, November 2016
“… memorable, too, are their fine line-drawing and acute response to the ebb and flow of harmonic tension…” - Gramophone, Awards Issue 2016
