Lyapunov: Sextet; Gretchaninov: String Quartet No. 3

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Leonard
Just listen to the Dante Quartet's recording of the Allegro vivace Scherzo from Lyapunov's "Sextet." Just listen to the glimmering of the violins and piano, to the bardic tones of the cello and bass, to the sweetly sensual lyricism of the viola's duet with the cello.

And the Dante Quartet with pianist John Thwaites and bassist Leon Bosch perform it with heart and soul and complete belief in its intrinsic greatness. Now listen to the sound of the Dante Quartet's recording. Engineered by Tony Faulkner, produced and edited by Mike Purton with executive producer Michael J. Dutton, this recording is a Dutton Digital disc; that is, a digitally recorded disc released on the label that has brought the art of digital restoration to its aural apotheosis. This, the third disc of the Dante Quartet on Dutton, is deep, rich, warm, honest, true, and absolutely immediate. It is, in other words, all but real. The music is for anyone who loves great Russian music. The performance is for anyone who loves great chamber music performances. The sound is for anyone who loves reality.
