Time once again for a disc from the "unheard/unopened" piles circa 2013. I never heard of Gustavo Leone before buying this recording (I love you, Toccata Classics!!) and I am very excited about this album and composer going by what I have heard so far (track one "Una vow, un grit, un lament" and right now track two, the 1st movement of Leone's String Quartet No. 1..). This is string quartet music *just* the way I love it; it is engaging. it is beautiful. it is clearly contemporary but lyrical, and brimming with substance and ideas. Let's give a listen!!
Enjoy, thus far I sure am..
