Cecilia String Quartet Releases New Recording "DVOŘÁK" to rave reviews

  The Strad Magazine's review of DVOŘÁK:

Canada-based Cecilia Quartet ... produces an opulent sonority, with the cello centre-right of the ensemble and the viola on the  wing. It takes a more impressionable, rhythmically flexible, overtly Romantic approach.  [Of op.106's initial flourishes], Cecilia hurls us straight into the action with an espressivo urgency so powerful that one could almost be listening to a different piece. The scherzo is no mere generic, post-Mendelssohn interlude, but becomes a compelling emotional narrative in its own right. Cypresses and the Waltzes (gentle miniatures in theory) are also played with the kind of deeply felt imperativeness and affection normally reserved for full-blown masterpieces. The recordings richly glowing ambience heightens the impact of these performances...
