 Exquisite Quartets; Equally Exquisite Performance December 26, 2017 By Henry S. (Springfield, VA) See All My Reviews "The Utrecht String Quartet is at the top of its game in this fine recording of 2 string quartets by Dutch composer Johannes Verhulst. Verhulst composed 3 string quartets altogether, the two on this MD and G recording dating from around 1840. The CD notes suggest that Verhulst's association with Felix Mendelssohn and Robert Schumann can be detected throughout the program. I think this is a valid point, because these two quartets seem to contain the essential character of mature Romantic Era chamber music from the mid-19th century. Full of optimism, good cheer, and wonderful lyricism, Verhlulst's quartets are an absolute delight, especially with the world class playing of the Utrecht String Quartet. MD and G has given us an outstanding chamber music program with this disk, and I definitely give it a thumbs up. Try it, and you'll see what I mean." Report Abuse
