The centenary of Robert Simpson has afforded a new opportunity for a reappraisal of his music, which remains largely underexplored. The Minguet Quartet‘s programme places his 1978 quartet between two giants of the romantic canon. Introducing the quartet, Simpson wrote that ‘…the Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Quartets constitute a close study of Beethoven’s three Razumovsky Quartets, op 59, that is to say, the attempt to understand those great works resulted in not a verbal analysis but music. The hope is that anyone studying intelligently the musical analogies offered here will find the experience of benefit in approaching and entering Beethoven’s masterpieces … If these three quartets enhance understanding of the genius of Beethoven at their own expense, their purpose will have been served.’

Ulrich Isfort (violin)
