Notes and Editorial Reviews

Krzysztof Meyer’s widely performed and multi award-winning music embraces impressive emotional depth and immense technical variety. While the Seventh Quartet explores the contrasts between solo and ensemble writing in a single movement, the extended Tenth Quartet can be seen as a synthesis of Meyer’s experience with the genre. The Thirteenth Quartet is his most recent to date. The Wieniawski String Quartet’s recordings of Meyer have been acclaimed as “exemplary in all respects” (The WholeNote on Vols 1 & 2: Naxos 8.570776 and 8.572656).
