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!

Eric Alexander has had many opportunities to record as a leader for several different labels, though producer Tetsuo Hara, owner of the Japanese label Venus, has become a huge fan, recording him almost any time he travels to New York City. This 2008 session finds the tenor saxophonist with several musicians with whom he is very familiar, including pianist Mike LeDonne, bassist John Webber, and drummer Joe Farnsworth (the latter two who play with Alexander in the co-op band One for All)…

The fifth CD boxed set, Vol. V, from the series The RIAS Amadeus Quartet Recordings is dedicated to nineteenth-century Romantic composers. This six-volume edition presents exclusively first releases on CD. The Amadeus Quartet included a wider repertoire in the broadcasting studio than in the recording studio. Works by Edvard Grieg and Robert Schumann interpreted by the Amadeus Quartet can be heard here for the first time on CD. And five works in this edition represent novel repertoire that the Amadeus Quartet never recorded on LP: Dvorák's Piano Quintet in A Major, Op. 81, Grieg's String Quartet in G Minor, Op. 27, Mendelssohn's String Quartet in E-flat Major, Op. 12, as well as Schumann's String Quartet in A Major, Op. 41, No. 3 and Piano Quintet in E-flat Major, Op. 44.

A judicious coupling of Shostakovich recordings by the Jerusalem Quartet who have won BBC Music Magazine Awards no less than three times. “Vivid, profoundly intelligent accounts of six of Shostakovich's Quartets. The Jerusalems prove eloquent exponents of these works' tragic intensity and bittersweet lyricism.” - BBC Music Magazine, February 2013.
