Petits-fours – Brodsky Quartet

Chandos Records signed an exclusive contract with the Brodsky Quartet in time for the celebrations of its fortieth anniversary in 2012.

Formed in 1972, the Brodsky Quartet quickly emerged at the forefront of the international chamber music scene. It has performed more than 2000 concerts and made more than fifty highly acclaimed recordings. This is the Quartet’s first release on Chandos, and includes many of the encores it has performed over the years, notable for their novelty and diverse range of styles and emotions. All the pieces have been arranged by past or current members of the Quartet, and together they form an entertaining and original collection.



"...what fabulous arrangements these are! All four players share the limelight- melodies and virtuosic turns are equally parceled out. And they’re also audible, that to the warm, resonant, clear and (above all) balanced engineering. What a tribute this album serves to this group, celebrating its 40th anniversary this year... The Brodsky’s timbre on this album is superbly polished... what is especially remarkable here is their breadth of styles... This is the perfect album for background music to brighten your day or dinner party."

Gil French - American Record Guide - July/August 2012


"...This celebratory disc presents a series of their favourite encores, the overwhelming majority of which are heard in premiere recordings ...The recording, undertaken at Potton Hall, is warm and sympathetic, and admirers of the group can enjoy the finely played..."

Jonathan Woolf - musicweb-international - 5 May 2012


“...where most such collections offer a mixed bag for you to select at will, this one offers a satisfying sequence when played end to end... Cunningly, the sequence ends with one of the gentlest numbers, Debussy’s song ‘Beau soir’. Cassidy is again responsible for most of the arrangements in the sequence. What is so striking about the playing of the Brodsky Quartet throughout is their brimming love for the music, with some ravishing shading down to the most hushed pianissimos. All this is caught in wonderfully rich and transparent sound, a credit to the Chandos engineers.”

Edward Greenfield – Gramophone magazine – June 2012


                  *****    - Very Good

Guy Wagner – Pizzicato magazine – May 2012


           IRR Outstanding
“...In keeping with the enjoyably sugary repertoire,  Chandos’s sound is sweet, intimate and always very clear.”

Raymond S Tuttle – International Record Review – April 2012


                         Performance *****      Recording *****
“What better way for the Brodsky Quartet to celebrate its 40th birthday than with a sumptuously engineered recital of champagne encores skilfully arranged by the quartet’s viola player, Paul Cassidy and former leader Andrew Haveron? Acclaimed for their probing musicianship, the Brodsky Quartet blow the musical cobwebs off some of the most cherishable miniatures in the repertoire ... Here’s to the next 40 years.”

Julian Haylock – BBC Music magazine – April 2012
