Liner Notes

The Delme is numbered among the UK’s most distinguished and respected ensembles and since its founding, it has established an international reputation as one of the leading interpreters of the classical repertoire.

The Delme String Quartet – 40th Anniversary Issue
Galina Solodchin, John Trusler – violins
John Underwood – viola
Jonathan Williams – cello

We were able to celebrate four decades of the Delme Quartet, without once having to make allowance for the passing of time… I was left with the memory of sterling string tone and the feeling that everything they played had a point of view… here’s to the next 40 years. The Strad, 40th Anniversary Recital, Wigmore Hall, June 2002

The D minor is played here by the Delme with such love and finesse.. whilst the A flat – Dvorak summing up a lifetime’s devotion to chamber music – is deep and unalloyed pleasure. David Cairns – The Sunday Times, 25th August 2002
