About the album

Prize-winning Amsterdam-based string quartet, the Dudok Kwartet, make their recording debut here with an enthralling and eclectic programme of works by Joseph Haydn, György Ligeti and Johannes Brahms. Recipients of the prestigious 2014 Kersjes Prize for an exceptional Dutch chamber ensemble the quartet have a rapidly growing reputation as one of the most promising young European strings quartets.

Exploring the theme of metamorphoses in the music of the three composers represented here, these exquisite performances feature music from the entire spectrum of the quartet repertoire, from fresh interpretations of Haydn's C major quartet from his Op. 54 to the technical limits explored in Ligeti's first string quartet, Metamorphoses nocturnes, and the quartet's own effective arrangements of Brahms piano intermezzi.
