British Piano Quartets


Amara Piano Quartet CD Cover


"I cannot praise highly enough the playing of The Ames Piano Quartet -- Mahlon Dartington, violin; Jonathan Sturm, viola; George Work, cello; William David, piano -- whose work here is of the highest order. I had admired their earlier set of the Faure piano quartets but with this set I realize I need to seek out their other recordings; this is a world-class ensemble.

Strongly recommended."


"This collection of British piano quartets by the Ames Piano Quartet is a marvel and a wonder, a marvel that an ensemble from Iowa can so magnificently capture the quintessentially English quality of the music and a wonder that so much first-rate chamber music remains so far beyond the range of the standard repertoire."
