This CD follows the Mozart String Quartets Volume I (SOMMCD 040). This sextet of works reveals the stylistic trends which were influencing their composer at this time: Italianate lyricism and Salzburger strength and effect. Coull display throughout a genuine feel for the quartet medium, each instrument a partner on equal terms with its colleagues.

Coull Quartet: Roger Coull, Philip Gallaway – Violins
Gustav Clarkson – Viola
Nicholas Roberts – Cello

“Here is a group, exceptionally intelligent and responsive, which gives freshness to any music it touches.” The Guardian
