A very special release from Somm - the premiere recording of the Third String Quartet by Nicholas Maw. It was commissioned by the University of Warwick and is played by the Coull Quartet who premiered the work to celebrate their 21st Anniversary in 1995. It is written in a continuous five movement structure reminiscent of Beethoven’s ‘Quartetto Serioso’ Op 95. A perfect coupling for the Britten.
