String Quartets 1 & 2 - Helikon Quartet

“A beautifully coherent whole of story, sound, phrasing and ensemble playing.” Rating: 9/10
Luister Magazine

Maarten ter Horst's String Quartets Nos.1 and 2 (2017-2020) form a personal journey of love, doubt, fight­ing and hope. “The romantic nature of the music spoke to us,” the Helikon Quartet told Dutch newspaper NRC.

“A demonstration of quartet playing of the highest order (…) A praiseworthy CD, which could actually win an award”
