KRZYSZTOF MEYER (b.1943): String Quartets No. 5, Op. 42, No. 6, Op. 51 & No. 8, Op. 67.
Catalogue Number: 10L092
Description: These quartets are not explicitly tonal but have constant tonal centers, not so very far from the last chamber works of Shostakovich, on whom Meyer is a noted authority. Emotionally involving and meticulously crafted they fit well into the generally mainstream 20th-century style which should appeal to those who admire the music of Bartók and Shostakovich. Wieniawski String Quartet.
