 Sophisticated Lady Jazz Quartet Ensemble

The string quartets of Danish music’s eccentric outsider Rued Langgaard (1893-1952) are passionate works of the composer’s youth, representing both his nostalgically romantic side and his profoundly visionary modernity. For the first time on CD, this recording series presents all 8 quartets in the award-winning young Nightingale String Quartet’s distinctly dramatic interpretation based on the revised Rued Langgaard Edition.

"...Inventive fecundity, manifold sense of humour … memorable music without recourse to gadgetry, affectation or cliché..."
Byzantation - - April 2013

                  Gramophone Choice 
"...This young Danish Ensemble throws itself into the music... To call the second volume ’eagerly anticipated’ would be a massive understatement."
David Fanning - Gramophone magazine - May 2012

             CHAMBER CHOICE

"... the Nightingale Quartet understand all these aspects: the provocative vitality, the fragile romantic sensitivity and the striking intellectual independence behind it all. It’s all beautifully recorded too."  *****
Stephen Johnson - BBC Music magazine - May 2012

 "...Highly recommended."  *****

John Miller - - 24 May 2012

"...Beautifully recorded at the Royal Danish Academy of Music and issued on Denmark’s national record label, these performances are as close to definitive as you can get. Wonderful stuff, and I can’t wait to hear the rest of the series."
Terry Robbins - - July 2012

"...simply breathtaking. I can’t wait for the next release."
Hua Kosman - San Francisco Chronicle - 01 July 2012
