In the musical landscape of the sixteenth century there was little place for 'Dutch' composers in the strict sense of the word. […] Due to the favourable cultural and economic climate the region developed into a breeding ground for renaissance polyphony. […] On this CD, the step from the past to the present is a small one.

The Amsterdam Loeki Stardust Quartet was founded in 1978. Its unusual name derives from one of the Quartet's first arrangements: the Loeki the Lion melody from Dutch television commercials. Their recording of 'Virtuoso Recorder Music' (L'Oiseau Lyre 414 277-1) received an Edison Award in 1986. The jury observed that 'Their intensely musical performance, their great devotion and evident pleasure in playing draw attention immediately to the music itself. Playing of this standard is seldom heard on a first recording'.

The Amsterdam Loeki Stardust Quartet was founded in 1978 by Daniël Brüggen, Bertho Driever, Paul Leenhouts and Karel van Steenhoven who were students at the Sweelinck Conservatory Amsterdam at that time. The quartet has continually explored the boundaries of the recorder consort. Following its formation, the ensemble's reputation grew quickly and was further strengthened at the 1981 Musica Antiqua Competition in Bruges where, challenging the competition rules, it performed an unusual arrangement of a Stevie Wonder song and emerged as the winner.

Review
The Loeki Stardust Quartet play a variety of recorders from sopranino to sub-contrabass producing heavenly harmony. They offer a wonderful take on truly great but often difficult or unapproachable music. The recording is excellent. So good is it that the close miking may have you reaching for your distortion metre - don't panic: it's just the sound of spittle and air in the mouthpiece of some of the bass instruments.
A delightlful disc!

These first complete recordings of the string quartets of Schoenberg, Berg, Webern and Zemlinsky have won numerous international awards and been hailed as landmarks in the discography of 20th-century music. Impeccable ensemble, superbly blended timbre and pure intonation ….This set [Schoenberg, Berg, Webern] is indeed a wonderful achievement (MusicWeb International). Febrile intensity and faultless proportioning of each formal structure [Zemlinsky] (Guardian).

Never mind the Symphonie espagnole and Le roi d’Ys, Edouard Lalo is the last of the great unknowns in 19th-century French music. His mature instrumental works combine the wisdom drawn from his professional playing experience with the familiar flair for rhythm and colour. They are likely to transform any opinion you may hold: it isn’t often that the inspiration of Beethoven was so well digested in France. The first two trios don’t really count as mature, and although they contain fine things, especially in the scherzos, their characteristic soul, sweep and dash are often clumsily handled. With No. 3, form and feeling are as one, the first movement’s surges integral to its progress to a hushed end, while the slow movement builds a powerful span from a sustained melody. Between them comes the irresistible piece better known in Lalo’s later arrangement as a Scherzo for orchestra. These performances have the necessary robustness without stinting on delicacy.

It's hard to believe after hearing the eloquence of "Then I'll Be Tired of You" or the title track, but John Coltrane's ballad mastery was the last of his skills to receive wide appreciation. The notion that Coltrane the balladeer was as commanding as Coltrane the uptempo wizard or Coltrane the blues player finally gained acceptance in the early 60s, when this album first appeared and quickly became an important exhibit in the reconsideration. The extended performances boast additional delights, including Paul Chambers's arco bass on "Stardust," Red Garland's well-paced choruses on "Time After Time," some of Wilbur Harden's best trumpet work on "Love Thy Neighbor," and Freddie Hubbard's earliest on "Then I'll Be Tired of You"…
