Notes and Editorial Reviews

For their very first release of French music the marvelous Lindsays present the two best-loved of all French string quartets - PLUS a fascinating filler in Stravinsky's revolutionary 3 Pieces of 1914. The performances are stunning, with that edge-of-the-seat spontaneity which is the Lindsays' trademark. 'There are revelations a-plenty in these performances' (The Times) Penguin Guide *** Gramophone Good CD Guide Recommendation For their very first release of French music the marvelous Lindsays present the two best-loved of all French string quartets - PLUS a fascinating filler in Stravinsky's revolutionary 3 Pieces of 1914.
