Following on from their recent release of Beethoven Quartets Op.59 Nos. 2&3, this latest issue from Brodsky Quartet further displays the diversity for which the Quartet is renowned

They capture equally well both Janáček’s passionate nature - the 2nd Quartet ‘Intimate Letters’ is a reflection of his infatuation with a much younger woman, to whom he wrote a large number of love-letters - and his feeling for drama, with restless, driving performances

The album is released to tie in with a series of performances of these pieces, the Brodsky Quartet will be performing them almost every night for 2 weeks in July as part of a production of a new play by Brian Friel. The play is based on the story of Janáček’s life whilst he was writing the 2nd Quartet, and his infatuation with the young lady who was the recipient of his love letters.

Reviews
"...The Brodskys muster plenty of force and mount the technical challenges with ease. speeds undulate in in time with the music's heartbeat and the sound colours cover a vast range...A powerful disc" - The Times
