David’s Review Corner: David Denton, May 2013

Review of Kenneth Fuchs CD  The Fifth String Quartet was completed in 2011, and though he subtitles it ‘American’, its roots are in Europe, not least of all in the UK. Basically a melodic and lyric work, that is most readily attractive, even to conservative ears… Commissioned by the performers on the disc, the Delray String Quartet, the score is in four movements taking us through contrasts in tempo and mood. Though little known outside of North America, the performers are obviously a fine ensemble who produce a well-balanced and beautiful tonal quality…Much recommended. © David’s Review Corner READ MORE
