On the Naxos lebel, the music of Krzysztof Penderecki was championed by his compatriot, conductor Antoni Wit. This new release by the award-winning Tippett Quartet serves as a tribute to one of Poland’s greatest composers, who sadly passed away 29 March 2020.
The Tippett Quartet is devoted to contemporary chamber music. It has recorded music by Penderecki’s Polish contemporaries Panufnik and Lutosławski on 8573164: ‘These are vital performances, edgy and energetic but rich in tone’ (Gramophone).
They were awarded Gramophone’s ‘Recording of the Month’ for Górecki’s String Quartet no.3 (8574110): ‘I cannot recommend this recording highly enough, and have run out of superlatives.’ The String Quartets nos. 1 and 2 release on 8573919 was also a Gramophone Choice, and praised by The Strad for their ‘Rich, dramatic performances that have the measure of a Polish master’.
The quartet has also recorded music by the composer after whom they take their name – Gramophone wrote on 8570496: ‘Tippett’s tribute is beautifully shaped by the eponymous quartet’; and on 8570497 Fanfare exclaimed: ‘Just buy it.’
The Tippett Quartet has an impressive catalogue of recordings, most recently being awarded Gramophone magazine’s Recording of the Month for Górecki’s String Quartet No. 3 (Naxos 8574110). The Tippett Quartet has worked on a ground-breaking reimagining of Beethoven’s Op.135 with composer/soundscape artist Matthew Herbert and has also given numerous world and UK premieres including newly-discovered works by Tchaikovsky and Holst, as well as new pieces by John Adams, Freya Waley-Cohen, Howard Goodall and Alissa Firsova.
