Description: The three main works here (excluding the Jazz Dances which are new) date originally from 1974-76 (in fact, the lovely, neo-Romantic, sometimes almost Czech-sounding quartet's recording is from 1974) although the sonata and Penillion have later revisions. The quartet is captivating while the sonata veers closer to the world of film- and popular-music (Blake's "day job"). Madeleine Mitchell (violin), Howard Blake (piano), Jack Rothstein (violin, Op. 179), Kenneth Essex (viola), Peter Willison (cello).
