About the album

In the summer of 1981, four string players from various orchestras of the Netherlands Broadcasting Corporation (Ronald Hoogeveen and Rami Koch, violin, Zoltan Benyacs, viola, and Henk Lambooij, cello) banded together to form a string quartet which they named after the great Italian sculptor, painter and architect Rafaello. ln 1983 the Quartet became an official ensemble of the Dutch radio network and made its official concert debut in the Amsterdam Concertgebouw. The repertoire of the Raphael Quartet spans a range of styles and periods from Haydn to Shostakovich and many invitations for international concerts have led to a growing critical reputation, which has been enhanced by their still growing number of recordings for Globe with probing performances and for the most part an unusual repertoire choice.
