Hidden gems of the chamber music repertoire, the Fitzwilliam String Quartet's sublime recordings of the string quartets of Sibelius and Delius are released on CD for the first time, coupled with Delius's little cello masterpiece - his Sonata in one movement. Alan George of the Fitzwilliam Quartet provides the liner notes for the two pieces this ensemble has recorded and this reissue is dedicated to the memory of Christopher Rowland, first violinist, who recently passed away.
