Transfigured Night

The Hollywood String Quartet

New LP re-release

The Hollywood String Quartet plays Schoenberg, Ravel and Debussy.

***

This was the first ever recording of Verklärte Nacht in its original sextet form and it remains unsurpassed. When it was first reviewed in Gramophone, the late Lionel Salter wrote of it as being 'beautifully played with the most careful attention to details of dynamics and phrasing, with unfailing finesse, with consistently sympathetic tone, and, most important, with a firm sense of the basic structure.'
