String Quartets by Lyell Cresswell

We are recording our latest CD with Delphian Records this month at St Mary’s Collegiate Church, Haddington.

One of New Zealand’s most distinguished composers, Cresswell made Edinburgh his home in 1982 and has since become one of the most important figures in the Scottish music scene, receiving a prestigious Scottish Arts Council ‘Creative Scotland Award’ in 2001. His output comprises works for orchestra, chamber ensembles, choir, voice and solo instruments. Despite a discography that covers much of his music for orchestra, his string quartets remain as yet unrepresented on disc.

This recording will add these important works to the recorded catalogue, creating a new international platform for Cresswell’s music while making a significant contribution to the recorded repertoire of one of Scotland’s most eminent composers.
