Gramophone Critic's Choice of 2001 new releases
Gramophone

‘This is the third volume of the Sorrel’s complete Shostakovich cycle and very fine performances they are.’
Sunday Telegraph

‘Their Ninth Quartet, placed first on this disc, strikes me as especially fine.’
Gramophone

‘The phrasing is elegant, the textures lucid … an auspicious beginning.’
The Guardian on CHAN 9741 (Volume One)

‘The playing is so wonderfully on the music’s wavelength – quietly hyper-intense, while always threatening to detonate …’
Classic FM on CHAN 9741 (Volume One)

‘These interpretations have a cumulative intensity that draws one into the composer’s confessional world.’
The Daily Telegraph on CHAN 9769 (Volume Two)

'These are impressive performances on their own merits that, like a good bottle of wine, may ripen with time.'
Fanfare

The Sorrel… reinforce their claim to be one of the best British quartets of today… Recording quality is superb.
Sunday Telegraph
