Top rating for another Kalliwoda recording

This time it’s String Quartets, recorded by the Tallich Quartet on Calliope, in the reviewer’s spotlight. Reviews such as this (replete with more than its fair share of words such as ‘delicious’, ‘fascinating’ and ‘really beautiful’) make you wonder, firstly, why this composer and his music were neglected for so long, and, secondly, what began this extraordinary resurgence of interest in his output. Our experience of the 5th Symphony at the session back in August was revelatory, and this extraordinary succession of wildly enthusiastic reviews is so intriguing that I for one will certainly hunt down these recordings and add them to my collection. Isn’t it amazing? Despite years and years of exposure to music, there’s still more out there to discover and savour.
