About this Recording

DANIELPOUR, R.: String Quartets Nos. 5-7 (Plitmann, Delray String Quartet)

Each of these three quartets is informed by a particular theme: String Quartet No. 5, subtitled ‘In Search of La vita nuova’, reflects Richard Danielpour’s relationship with Italy over the decades, conveying a sense of journey and discovery expressed in its ultimately elliptical trajectory. Concerned with the quartet as a metaphor for family, String Quartet No. 6 explores ideas of distance, time and ultimately, leavetaking. String Quartet No. 7, subtitled ‘Psalms of Solace’, pursues the search for the Divine, successive movements taking intellect, the force of will, and romantic love as their subject before the appearance in the finale of a soprano voice.
