Holmboe Vol. 2

Vagn Holmboe String Quartets Vol. 2

‘A most promising start to an essential, richly recorded survey’, observed Gramophone about the first volume of Vagn Holmboe’s complete string quartets by the Nightingale String Quartet. In this, the second instalment, the Nightingales continues convincingly with energetic, precise, yet lively and poetic interpretations of the Holmboe quartets, which stand amongst the most significant contributions to the genre in the 20th century.

Gramophone Editors Choice, August ’22

The performance by Nightingale String Quartet is a sensitive and careful version of pure mythical poetry

An excellent disc, then, as well as a valuable addition to the Holmboe discography. The Nightingale Quartet plays with fervor and commitment as well as an astounding technique

Nightingales sing loud and clear in part two of a must-have cycle
