One of the foremost British ensembles, the Kreutzer Quartet specializes in new music and has already made many recordings for Metier and other labels. This superb film is not only the record of brilliant performances of major modern quartets and fine entertainment, it is also a valuable and rewarding tool for observing how the layers of an ensemble communicate and interact, especially in works like that of Lutoslawski which allow performers a degree of choice. Above all it is a demonstration that music very often should be seen as well as heard.
The Kreutzer Quartet is one of the premier quartets in Europe and every year gaining more of a reputation for the championing of contemporary composers while not ignoring the classical and Romantic repertoire.
Kreutzer Quartet are Peter Sheppard Skaerved (violin); Mihailo Trandafilovsky (violin); Morgan Goff (viola); Neil Heyde (cello)
