TCHAIKOVSKY

String Quartets 1 & 3

The Heath Quartet makes its harmonia mundi début with this contrasting programme of Tchaikovsky’s String Quartets: his Quartet No. 1 (famed for its plaintive “Andante cantabile”) and the tempestuous No. 3 (dedicated to the memory of Ferdinand Laub). “The music’s potency and bravura were conveyed with thrilling conviction.” (THE GUARDIAN)

SUNDAY TIMES CLASSICAL ALBUM OF THE WEEK

“it’s good to hear these outstanding young British musicians in still relatively neglected works … the Heath players pour out Tchaikovsky’s grief for his friend with a depth of tone and virtuosity – in the allegros – that matches the finest Russians on disc. A notable debut.”

Hugh Canning – The Sunday Times
