FRICKER: THE STRING QUARTETS



Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Benefitting from the afterglow of the 1949 Koussevitzky Prize for his First Symphony, Peter Racine Fricker’s original and striking First Quartet was premièred later that year to international acclaim. The Second Quartet shares a formal clarity and kinship with the tonality heard in the First, but evolving in range, technique and eloquence of expression. The symmetrical Third Quartet with its
intricate variations is finely crafted in the serial style of Fricker’s later music.

The music of Peter Racine Fricker is undergoing something of a gradual renaissance at the moment after many years in the wilderness.

New recordings are a rarity however, and with this brand new production of Fricker’s complete string quartets made in association with the British Music Society we are well ahead of the competition.

The Villiers Quartet is winner of the 2015 Radcliffe Chamber Music Competition,
and holds the position of Quartet-in- Residence at Oxford University’s Faculty of Music, encompassing the grand and iconic spirit of London’s extraordinary music tradition.
