Synopsis

Amazon.com
This was the debut recording of a Canadian group that plays chamber music with an unusual attitude. The repertoire ranges from a J.C. Bach Oboe Quartet to "Danny Boy" and "O Sole Mio." They play a variety of instruments, and violin/mandolin player Peter De Sotto also sings in a beautiful light tenor. While this may not be a disc for purists, the performances are as fine as anything you might hear from more serious ensembles. Sometimes I'm just not in the mood for late Beethoven, and when I want musical desserts, the "Ice Cream Quartet" suits me just fine. --Leslie Gerber

CD Reviews

Wonderful, refreshing, elegant, whimsical, we love it.
Nancy DeCherney | Alaska | 10/04/1998

"Whenever we play this CD while friends are visiting, they always ask who it is: They want it! This is wonderfully performed delightful music, sure it is CLASSICAL with (even scarier) OPERA thrown in, but is just so engaging, almost magical, just beautiful listenable music."
Excellent recording of chamber music.

"I bought this recording in 1997 and it quickly became a favourite. Quartetto Gelato is absolutely wonderful. I went to one of their concerts in Philadelphia and was absolutely amazed by their virtuosity and versatility. It was the most fun that I've ever had at a classical concert.They perform some things from the standard repertoire. The violinist/tenor Peter DeSotto has an absolutely beautiful voice. They also play many other things that you might not normally hear, such as Antonio Pasculli's Concerto Sopri Motivi dall'Opera la Favorita di Donizetti. I would reccommend this recording highly. I would also reccommend seeing them live. When you see them live, it only serves to highlight the stunning virtuosity and incredible musicianship of this group."
Perfect Balance for a Dinner

"I chose this CD for the zany group name, and it's become one of my favourites for proper listening or background music. Many CDs are too uniform across the tracks, or too mixed up in styles. This one has interesting songs sung/played very richly and emotionally, and is really a motivating/uplifting CD for the night time with good friends at dinner or alone."
