A new GENUIN CD with the thrilling Asasello Quartet! It’s the third disc released by the ensemble, known for its unconventional concert ideas, and it has now also made a name for itself as a prizewinner at international competitions. The program features Schoenberg’s amazingly diverse oeuvre for string quartet, and we can’t imagine a more eloquent advocate for these too-rarely performed milestones of the repertoire. From the fringes of tonality in the first quartet to the free-flowing twelve-tone language of the fourth – an electrifying quartet sound played at a staggering level. Experience these soaring peaks of the repertoire!

Nominated for the 2016 German Record Critics' Award
