• New CD Note (Górecki/Hyperion)

hmg-hyperion-2011This is the third time that I have written CD booklet notes on the Górecki string quartets. Back in 1993, I wrote on no.2 ‘Quasi una fantasia’, followed 14 years later by no.3 ‘.. songs are sung’, both for Kronos on Nonesuch.  In 2008, the Silesian Quartet – great friends of the composer – brought out all three quartets on EMI Poland.  Now, in 2011, another Polish ensemble, the young and dynamic Royal String Quartet, has recorded these quartets for Hyperion.  It has been a privilege to revisit these three masterpieces in its company.
