Notes and Editorial Reviews

Comparing two styles, this album features charming works by little-known composers Radu Paladi and Zdenek Fibich. The first work, a string quartet written by Paladi in 1956, shows the composer’s neoclassical style, combining classical forms with elements of traditional Romanian folk music. The second work is a string quartet by Czech composer Fibich. Written in 1878, one can clearly hear the influences of German romanticism. Performing these works is the Martfeld Quartet, consisting of violinists Liviu Neagu-Gruber and Axel Hess, violist Antje Kaufmann, and cellist Katharina Apel.
