The expressive string quartet in G by Grieg and a remarkably strong imagination in the quartet of a certain David Monrad Johansen, composed in 1969 by this relatively unknown Norwegian composer, Matangi also plays a short two-part Quartettino in A by the Dutch. composer Julius Röntgen, a romantic whose work has fortunately come to the fore more recently than ever before. Since Röntgen was close friends with Grieg, his lively, imaginative and brilliantly written quartet is a masterful trouvaille as the final piece of these fine string quartets from Norwegian and Dutch soil, presented with great intensity and musical expressiveness. A programmatically original and fun-filled recording, which can be warmly recommended.
