About this Recording

HILL, Alfred: String Quartets, Vol. 3 (Dominion String Quartet) - Nos. 5, 7, 9

The Dominion Quartet continues its exploration of the string quartets of Alfred Hill, an Australian-born composer who studied in Europe and lived for much of his life in New Zealand. The Fifth pays tribute to France, America, Italy and Britain, nations that were allies during World War I. In the Seventh, hints of the music of Debussy, Ravel and Dvořák coexist within Hill’s own Late Romantic idiom. The Ninth, with its touches of Iberian colour, Impressionist passages and Czech harmonies show Hill as a musical citizen of the world.
