Album Notes
Recorded at the historic Methuen Memorial Music Hall outside Boston, MA, the Borromeo String Quartet's first recording project for Image Recordings, featuring the Quartet and String Duo of Maurice Ravel, was honored with the Chamber Music America/WQXR Award for Recording Excellence in 2001.

This dynamic young group has won the Young Concert Artists International Auditions as well as the prestigious Cleveland Quartet Award.  The group has a busy performing schedule at major concert halls throughout the world, and audiences invariably rise to their feet spontaneously at their concerts.  This disc will give you an idea why!


"So rich in detail and variety one might have thought an entire orchestra was playing."
The Washington Post

"It is impossible to imagine a better performance. This quartet combines every 20th-century virtuoso ensemble virtue with an old-world sense of color, character, and style."
The Boston Globe

Classical music at its finest!
Borromeo String Quartet do a fantastic job on this cd. Keep up the good work!

Stephen Grabow

The Borromeo beautifully capture the uniquely French tone colors of the Ravel Quartet and are right up there with the Italiano, Melos and Guarneri Quartet versions. Wonderful transparency and articulation.

Mira Finelli, New Age Music Review

Outstanding Ravel performance & interpretation!
If you do not care to listen to music like that, please do not call yourself a musician. Even if Ravel is too serious for you, the highest level of musicianship displayed by this amazing string quartet should lift your spirits and make you a happier human being. Excellent CD for anyone who appreciates great music at large!

Very nice indeed..
I love Ravel and I am playing some right now.
This is very romantic and sensuous music, and the players on this album play with the highest level of professionalism.
Very good record.

A most stunning performance, capturing the absolute elegance and lush gorgeousness of Maurice Ravel with fine detail, broad brushstrokes as well as intense energy. With a collective tone that can be appropriately gooey and thick, transparent and sparse as if stretched thinly across a barren landscape and dripping wet with a green aroma, the Borromeo String Quartet's interpretations dance on the fine edge between the unknown and the common. Each work is filled with such color and emotion that it bypasses your conscious listening and goes straight for the deeper, soul-listening, guiding, pushing and steering your imagination to unexplored worlds. Perfection in motion.
