• New CD Note (Szymański & Mykietyn/Hyperion)

034571280851This is the third CD by the Royal String Quartet for which I have had the pleasure and privilege of writing the booklet note.  Following on from the RSQ’s recordings of string quartets by Górecki and Penderecki and Lutosławski, Hyperion is now – with great initiative – drawing attention to music by younger Polish composers who are far less well-known outside Poland.  Paweł Szymański and Paweł Mykietyn are fascinating composers, and this CD is a terrific introduction to their chamber music.  These four works, dating from 1982 to 2013, are given performances with the clarity, insight and verve that are the hallmark of the RSQ.

Here’s the link to my booklet note for the Szymański and Mykietyn String Quartets, or you can scroll the CD NOTES tab above.
