Chandos Records has announced the release of the British-based Brodsky Quartet‘s new album: Elgar: String Quartet Piano Quintet. 

Recorded with acclaimed English pianist Martin Roscoe, the disc features Sir Edward Elgar’s String Quartet in E Minor Op. 83 – coupled with his Piano Quintet in A Minor Op. 84.

”We hope the listener will take from this recording a strong sense of nostalgia for a lost age as well as the tragedy and foreboding of the First World War … but also an uplifting and mesmerising example of the unsung genius of this composer … ” violinist Daniel Rowland has told The Violin Channel.

“His understanding of the chamber music genre and of both strings and piano is captivating and delightful,” he has said.
