About

Meridian Records are delighted to announce the release of an exciting new disc featuring the Primrose Piano Quartet, one of the UK's leading chamber ensembles. Central to the album is their passionate rendition of the Elgar Piano Quintet with guest second violin, Daniel Roberts. Two world premiere recordings are also featured; the Piano Quartet by celebrated composer Anthony Payne (who completed Elgar's Third Symphony), written for the Primrose Piano Quartet in 2015, and the Ballade for Clarinet and Piano by Joseph Holbrooke, performed by guest artist Ronald Woodley. The final work on the release is the colourful Phantasy Quintet by York Bowen for the unusual combination of bass clarinet and string quartet.

The Primrose Piano Quartet was formed in 2004 by pianist John Thwaites and three of the UK's most renowned chamber musicians (Lindsay, Sorrel, Edinburgh, Maggini Quartets). It is named after the great Scottish violist, William Primrose, who himself played in the Festival Piano Quartet. Alongside their performances of the major repertoire, the Primrose Quartet have researched widely the forgotten legacy of 20th century English composers, and have revived a number of remarkable and unjustly neglected piano quartets.

Primrose Piano Quartet:
- Susanne Stanzeleit (violin)
- Dorothea Vogel (viola)
- Andrew Fuller (cello)
- John Thwaites (piano)
