Krzysztof Meyer’s intensely dramatic and eloquent string quartets stand at the centre of his achievements as a composer. The extremes of mood which characterize the Ninth Quartet contrast with the Eleventh Quartet, whose form recalls the single movement quartets of Shostakovich. The Twelfth Quartet is a richly expressive and forceful summation of the composer’s contribution to this genre. The Wieniawski Quartet’s recording of Meyer’s Quartets Nos. 5, 6 and 8 (8.570776) was welcomed as an ‘exciting issue of very stimulating music’. (MusicWeb International)
