The playing is so wonderfully on the music’s wavelength – quietly hyoer-intensive, while always threatening to detonate…
Classic FM Magazine

The phrasing is elegant , the texture lucid… an auspicious beginning.
The Guardian

…bodes well for future instalments
Gramophone

What sets the Sorrel Quartet apart on this recording is their hotline to the heart of the music, to an extent that is remarkable for a non-Russian quartet.The mood-swings between sober tragedy and whimsical irony, the manic dances of death, the haunted spaciousness and exploding fury – its all here, and the result is as overwhelming as it is moving.
Classic FM Magazine ‘Record of the Year 1999 – Modern’
