Cirrus String Quartet

WH ‘Billy’ Reed (1876-1942) was Leader of the London Symphony Orchestra between 1912 and 1935. He was also a close friend of Sir Edward Elgar and a superb composer in his own right. Hardly any of his compositions have been recorded and in this release you will hear the music of a superb craftsman, rich in melodic and harmonic invention, with a real English voice. This album, containing the 4th and 5th String Quartets and the two movement Légende, will provide well over an hour’s delightful listening performed by the Cirrus String Quartet, recorded in the fine and warm acoustic of The Space at the Pamoja Hall, The Space, Sevenoaks.
