The dramatic, expressive and highly melodic chamber music of the British composer Peter Fribbins, performed here by some of England’s finest chamber ensembles: the Angell Piano Trio, the Allegri Quartet and cello & piano duo Raphael Wallfisch and John York. The disc takes its name from the title of Fribbins's first String Quartet ‘I Have the Serpent Brought’ after lines from John Donne’s remarkable 17th-century poem ‘Twicknam Garden’ on which it's based. In 2007 the UK newspaper The Independent said Fribbins was ' of the outstanding composers of his generation.' This is a CD for all devotees of good string chamber music in the mainstream European tradition.

“This first disc devoted to [Fribbins's] music confirms his awareness of the potenfial of instrumental combinations that acknowledges their historical context without inhibiting their present and, by extension, their future viability...Too conservative for the neo-modernists and too ambivalent for the photo-fit tonalists among us, Fribbins is a composer with something to say”

Musical Pointers

“This portrait disc surveys the chamber music of Peter Fribbins (b. 1969), a thoughtful composer who eschews the latest fads in favour of solid craftsmanship, as exemplified by the long gestation of his Donne-inspired string quartet...Several excellent ensembles are brought together”
