Anton ArenskySono Luminus
Sono Luminus is proud to be a part of the Ying Quartet's commitment to expanding the rich string quartet repertoire with their latest release, Anton Arensky. Chamber music fans may be familiar with Arensky's beautiful and exciting "Piano Trio No. 1". Arensky's chamber music writing shows off some of his greatest strengths as a composer, and throughout his trios, quartets and quintet, his music is consistently lyrical, expressive, rich, and often brilliant. Because of Arensky's close relationship with Tchaikovsky, the release makes an intriguing follow-up to the Ying Quartet's earlier GRAMMY-nominated record, Tchaikovsky: Three String Quartets And "Souvenir de Florence" Sextet In D Minor.

"Great" in its height, design and the Georges Braque paintings that surround the audience, it is also intim...
The Ying Quartet. A stirring opening@BIMF / Portland Press Herald review
If the first concert of the Bowdoin International Music Festival's Beethoven Quartet cycle, Monday night at Crooker Theater, is any indication, the performance of all 16 quartets promises to be anything but an academic exercise.
