March 2016 saw the release of our first classical CD – three string quartets written by composer Alec Roth between 2010 and 2013 for the renowned Allegri Quartet, and recorded here for the first time.
“Happy, inclusive music” (Sunday Times);
“Roth..writes beautifully for strings – warmly recorded and handsomely performed” (The Arts Desk);
“Before acquiring this disc my acquaintance with the music of Alec Roth was limited to two short choral pieces. I can now confirm that he has a new, unconditional, admirer. This music brings simple pleasure on a first hearing, and you then want to hear it again, immediately. Roth is in complete control of his material, and that, plus the constantly varied textures, ensure that the listeners attention is captured at every moment. Furthermore, this is life-enhancing music that makes you smile. Each of these quartets deserves a regular hearing on the concert platform” (Music Web).
