Notes and Editorial Reviews



The Belcea Quartet is one of the world's leading chamber music ensembles, having won many international accolades since its establishment in 1994. + With the three string quartets by Benjamin Britten, the musicians have rediscovered a gem of 20th c. chamber music. + The String Quartets nos. 1, 2 and 3 were written over a period of 34 years; the third was Britten's last major work, composed in 1975, one year before his death. Recorded at Studio Davout, Paris in June 2014. + “... this new set by the outstanding Belcea Quartet bids fair to become the recording of choice...” (The Sunday Times)
