The profundities of this music must surely only be conveyed by four aged Russian males, deeply steeped in vodka and Soviet angst. Think again. Sadly I have not heard the Sorrels live, but I have heard great things about their music making, and on the evidence of this disc I can confirm this. What overwhelmed me most was the feeling of them living the music - each note has a weight and sense of purpose. Their performance of the eighth quartet might just be my favourite - all other recordings seem to be impatient by comparison. The Sorrels take a much more reverential approach which for me reflects the true horror of war. An unmissable disc.

The Sorrel Quartet capture these pieces to perfection, which is a far from easy task with a composer who so often is not what he seems at first hearing. The best-known work here is No. 8, placed last on the CD, and this is quite possibly where most listeners will begin. I have never heard a better performance - it is gripping from beginning to end, with the many moods beautifully caught and recorded in first-rate sound quality. Nos. 9 and 13 are if anything even better pieces; this is music which needs many hearings to be fully appreciated, and I would urge listeners to do just that - you will be amply repaid for your trouble. Again the Sorrels have obviously thought deeply about this disturbing music, and the performances have all the spontaneity of live music-making together with the accuracy of the recording studio. All in all an excellent disc.

HASH(0x9d162c18) out of 5 stars DSCH SQs 8.9.13: The Sorrel Have the Best Op.110 in the Catalogue, Right? 15 Mar. 2015
By 21st Century Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The Sorrel score big with was seems to be a universally acclaimed Op.110 that goes so far beyond any other performance, or recording, that it must be counted as, at least, the greatest of the modern versions, and maybe even the greatest conception of all? Please, take it from me, NOT A FAN OF OP.110, generally speaking, but, this performance is so profound as to give this piece new life for me. I could say this is in the Sorrel's "plush" style, and they certainly pad the slow bits, but, their big allegro is faster than the standard 2:41 by a few, and brutal it is too, and the first largo is the best by far of anyone- giant knocks of doom here folks!! Yes, everything you've heard about the Sorrel 8 are true!

And their 13 continues in like manner.

So, then, when I put on No.9, more of a favourite with me, I was a little disappointed by not having the same kind of violence I heard in 8. Yes, both 9 and 10 both , to me, don't seem to be in the same league as their 8. But, look at it this way: so many other cycles have dud 8th while having so much other good stuff- here we have the Supreme Eighth!! bum bum bum!!! So, this 9 is fine, a bit plush for my tastes, and I don't really listen to it.

HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION for the Perfect Op.110
