Notes and Editorial Reviews

The great Scandinavian composers Sibelius and Nielsen are regarded as two of the finest symphonists of the twentieth century -- yet their chamber music is sadly under-represented in the catalogs. The Calgary ensemble The Beau Quartet, presents moving and inspired accounts of "Voces Intimae" Quartet of Sibelius and the F Major Quartet of Nielsen to help address this oversight -- and will leave many wondering why this great music is not heard more often.
