“The hottest ensemble in town.” – The Age
In one of the most famous migrations of individual compositional creativity, Dvorak’s visit to the United States in the 1890s produced not only the New World Symphony and the Cello Concerto, but also the buoyant ‘American’ String Quartet. In the first of two concerts that span the US:USSR divide, the splendid Tinalley String Quartet bring us this masterwork of optimistic folkloric reinvention, and match it with a home-grown American classic in Barber’s Adagio , here heard in its original version for String Quartet.
