July 2015
John Whitehouse assesses the state of the string quartet in the 21st century in a collection of six recent discs.

Mention to the Arditti leads to a disc of music by Italian composer Dario Palermo, whose predilection for combining instruments with real-time electronics is evident in the three pieces here. The pulsating intricacy of the 'lunar dance' that is RO and the ethereal after-tones of TRANCE both look back to the heyday of the electroacoustics in the 1980's, while the appreciably longer The Difference Engine features a haunting contribution from mezzo Catherine Carter over the course of a work whose diverse components amount to a cohesive and inevitable whole. An arresting collection, by no means as hard-going as its turgid booklet-note might suggest.
