Review By Arnold Whittall ,Gramophone,October 2012

When Pulse Shadows was recorded complete, the Arditti Quartet contributed the nine quartet movements. Hearing them independently, in this brilliantly intense and technically first-rate new version, reinforces the uncompromising blend of concentration and disruptiveness that the original movement—now titled ‘Frieze 1’—sets out in embryo.
