Villiers Quartet Delius Elgar review

newsitem
08-16-2017

Another good review for the Villiers Quartet's new CD from Musicweb International:

"...The slow movement (Elgar) is quite ravishingly played, avoiding any cloying heart-on-sleeve quality. To close the squally writing of the Allegro molto feels joyfully uplifting. This elegantly played performance from the Villiers Quartet feels more captivating and sensitive than the 1995 recording recording from the Maggini Quartet, also on Naxos, and it is now my first choice. Succesfully recorded at St. Silas Churc, Pentonville, London, the players benefit from vividly clear, well balanced sound.

This desirable chamber release with convincing and stylish playing from the Villiers Quartet who offer endearing expression and impeccable intonation throughout..."  Michael Cookson, Musicweb International.
