Notes and Editorial Reviews

These three quintets by the London-born Stephen Dodgson continue the exploration of his chamber music on Toccata Classics. Dodgson's musical language inherited something of Shostakovich's irony. Janacek's spiky energy and Britten's polished clarity, occasionally reaching further into the past in passages of Purcellian dignity. All these characteristics animated with a gentle, harmonic warmth of Dodgson's own. The result, in a typically English paradox, manages to be both elusive and direct. The Tippett Quartet has performed at the BBC Proms, and numerous other festivals. Emma Abbate has performed in duo recitals for international festivals and concert societies all throughout the world. Susan Monks is Principal Cello of the BBC Symphony Read more Orchestra. Read less
