"The Tippett Quartet gets intimate with the shower scene in a thrilling chamber suite arrangement of Psycho. " ****
James McCarthy - Limelight Magazine - 30 June 2011
"There’s more to Bernard Herrmann than Psycho, thrillingly as its played here ... Recommended."
David Gutman - Gramophone - June 2011
"Across all three works, the Tippett Quartet lucidly communicates Hermann’s themes of mystery and paranoia..." ****
Anna Britten - Classic FM Magazine May 2011
"...Herrmann’s famous monochrome string score for Psycho is heard in a neat arrangement for double-tracked string quartet. The aggression is more of a shock when the microphones are placed this close; pizzicato notes have a powerful snap and it’s wonderful to hear Herrmann’s dissonant chords spelt out so clearly and cleanly. All three works are given exemplary performances by the Tippett Quartet and Julian Bliss’s liquid legato in the quintet is seductive."
