CD Reviews

Surprisingly Good!
Doug - Haydn Fan | California | 12/14/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Grechaninov is best known as a choral composer, but the string quartets are very attractive music, and surprisingly engaging.
The performers on this CD sound with some sweetness of tone, and generally avoid harsh playing. They clearly have thought out their performances, for these capture Grechaninov's light but remarkable lyric sensibility. If you enjoy quartets from the turn of the century - the 19th that is, these should prove a very nice treat. The first of the two, Op. 2, is touched with a delightful sense of beauty. A very fine recording, and not just for the adventurous!
