Schoenberg New Release

The First Quartet, Op 7.  is abundantly inventive, as the music parades its influences – Beethoven, Brahms, Liszt, Wagner and Reger – and veers unnervingly between intense chromaticism and moments of diatonic purity. Sherry and his group catch that sense of boundless energy and exuberant experimentalism perfectly, while always keeping a firm grip on the piece's structure. They mould the string-sextet version of Verklärte Nacht equally artfully, with every instrumental line beautifully presented.  -Andrew Clements, The Guardian, UK
