The Tippett Quartet's survey of the string quartets of Stephen Dodgson reaches its second volume with the Third and Fourth Quartets and the Quintet for Guitar and String Quartet. This is essentially lyrical music with graceful melodic lines, and the five movements of the Fourth Quartet can each be played as separate works. The Guitar Quintet features the Australian guitarist Craig Ogden, who brings a mercurial lightness to the virtuoso writing of the scherzo and a lyrical interplay with the strings in the outer movement. He draws a rich variety of sound in the finale, leading to a resounding climax. Yet another richly rewarding chamber music release from Dutton Epoch.
