This disc, another in the Maggini Quartet's series of recordings of string quartets by twentieth century English composers for Naxos, brings together the three quartets of Lennox Berkeley. And as in the group's previous recordings of quartets by Bridge, Arnold, and Rawsthorne, the music proves as excellent as it is unexpected. Berkeley's quartets date from 1935, 1941, and 1970, and each sounds like a work of its time yet still characteristic of the composer.

January 6 2008, 12:00am, The Sunday Times. For all Berkeley's French training (with Nadia Boulanger) and French refinement of technique, his quartet idiom is very English, closer to Britten and Tippett than to Ravel. The first of his three fine quartets, dating from 1935, is a big four-movement essay combining vigour and lyrical sweetness in a fetching manner, the sweetness most manifest in the andante non troppo second movement and the finale, though there is a sweetness - or, at any rate, a svelteness - to the craftsmanship throughout.
