CORP, R.: String Quartets Nos. 1 and 2 / Country Matters (Wilde, Maggini Quartet)

Praised for his previous choral music albums, British composer and conductor Ronald Corp now makes his Naxos chamber music début with this disc. His First String Quartet takes its name from the world’s largest, most stately and regal bird, the bustard, whose soaring flight and dance-like gait are evoked in this fascinating piece. His Second String Quartet celebrates a baby boy’s birth with joyful and exuberant music. The composer describes his song-cycle Country Matters as ‘poignant and riotously outrageous’. The Maggini Quartet are renowned for their authoritative interpretations of English chamber music, while tenor Mark Wilde also sings on several other Naxos recordings.
