Using Thomas Ades’ The Four Quarters as a framework – and featuring several arrangements by the ensemble – the Solem Quartet’s long-awaited debut album explores composers’ depictions of night and day and all the moments in between; from the melodious dawn chorus of Cassandra Miller’s Warblework, via Bartok’s earthly and touching portrayal of An Evening in the Village to Kate Bush’s ethereal And Dream Of Sheep.
