 Excellent January 3, 2015 By Henry S. (Springfield, VA) See All My Reviews "This is a very fine addition to the series of string quartets of Australian composer Alfred Hill, for which Naxos is surely deserving of some kudos. This set of 3 quartets is characterized by lyrical, conservatively structured, and above all melodic writing. The Dominion Quartet plays these works with polish and professionalism, and the sound is just fine, as you can really hear each of the 4 instruments in the quartet at work cooperating and competing with each other. If you are not familiar with the compositions of Alfred Hill, I think you will be very pleasantly surprised. Highly recommended." Report Abuse
