The dynamic young Escher Quartet has quickly established itself as one of the most exciting chamber music ensembles around today, its members noted for the cohesiveness of their playing and the individuality of their musicianship. Mendelssohn’s brilliant Quartet No. 6 and Schubert’s exquisite Quartet No. 13 in A minor – whose second movement is one of the best-loved melodies in all chamber music – contrast with the stark yet richly textured soundscape of Brett Dean’s Eclipse.
