Listen to The Rossetti Sound ...
...and if you've never listened to chamber music before, then let this be your first chamber music CD. It's a wonderful introduction to the genre - the quartet members play with mastery, and with unmistakable joy and devotion to their music. Play the first track and you'll soon realize that chamber music, while "serious," is far from being intimidating and boring - indeed Glazunov (Russian, 1865-1936) invites you to sway with his music or even dance to it.

Play on...



...and be taken backward in time, first to Smetana (Czech, 1824-84) and a rhapsodic movement from the most autobiographic of his three chamber works, before being introduced to the classic sounds of Beethoven (a lively allegro) and Mozart (a sweet andante) - excerpts from their innumerable chamber pieces. Then, be propelled back to the 20th century and be seduced by Piazzolla's (Argentine, 1921-92) sophisticated tango ballet - tango cliché? NOT!

Having shown that Mozart and Piazzolla can blissfully coexist on the same CD, the Rossetti String Quartet convincingly makes the case for chamber music - it is rich, evocative, introspective, soothing, uplifting - in other words, so multifaceted and oh, so enjoyable!
