11th Jan 2011 Review by Peter Reed: Park Lane Group Young Artists New Year Series Concert

This brace of concerts started with the Idomeneo String Quartet, formed in 2009 and surely destined to become a front-runner in such a crowded field. The musicians’ fluid, natural ensemble and mercurial musicality suited the heartfelt romanticism of Simon Rowland-Jones’s Third Quartet. If anything, the Idomeneo players were even better in Shostakovich’s Ninth Quartet. The last time I was on the receiving end of a young ensemble of this quality was with the arrival of the Pavel Haas Quartet, which is intended as a compliment.
