‘Dance’ – The Smith Quartet

The Smith Quartet returns on Signum with a new album of commissions and world premiere recordings, all centred on the theme of ‘Dance’. The featured programme is a veritable ‘who’s who’ of contemporary composition, including works by Michael Nyman, Graham Fitkin, Jon Lord, Michael Finnissy, and Django Bates.



"Take the floor with this intriguing collection of modern dances."

Ivan Moody - Gramophone June 2011


****

Philip Clark - Classic FM Magazine May 2011


              Editor’s Choice

"A diverse collection of 14 works is bound together by quality of composition and performance, testimony to the fecund relationship between modern dance and contemporary composers. The vibrant energy of Andrew Poppy’s Definately Disco, intricate delicacy of John Adams’ Pavane; She’s so fine, staccato bustle of Gabriel Prokofiev’s Bogle Move and wistfulness of Jon ord’s Zarabanda Solitaria - like a box of excellent chocolates, inviting frequent tasting."   Phillip Sommerich

Classical Music Magazine - 12 March 2011


"The Smith Quartet shimmy their way through a vibrant selection of overt and covert dances by living composers: with John Adams "Pavanne" and Kevin Volans "First Dance" the most familiar and Elena Kats-Chernin’s "Naive Waltz" the most elegant. While Joe Cutler’s "Folk Music" looks to the Tatra Mountains, Django Bates’s "peculiar Terms of Physical Intimacy" is inspired by Ireland. Donnacha Dennehy’s infectious "Stamp" is a caffinated riff on a 14th-century Saltarello." - Anna Picard
