As I sat down to write this review, in the summer of 2012, two renowned critics in the Herald and the Scotsman respectively had just written glowing accounts of a performance by Csengele Quartet - featuring two students who are about to graduate from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland - who had featured Thomas Wilson's Fourth String Quartet in their concert programme:
Extract from Herald review by Michael Tumelty
"Actually, it's the thought that counts. It's all very well to be a wizard on your instrument, but if there's no brainwork behind it, the music will just sprawl. And brainwork was everywhere in the Csengele's performance ...... - with such acuity - in Thomas Wilson's Fourth String Quartet, that every rhythmic quiver and expressive sigh in the music seemed hyper-alert."
Extract from Scotsman review of same performance
"First up was the Fourth String Quartet by Glasgow composer Thomas Wilson (who died in 2001) and it's difficult to imagine a piece that packs more incident and drama into a single 20-minute movement. The Csengele players rose to it all well, in a vivid, confidently paced performance in which everyone got the chance to shine - violist Christine Anderson in particular made her mark in some assertive playing early on. All four clearly relished the piece's striking mix of unashamed modernism and heart-on-sleeve emotion, and although there were a few rough edges, they only added to the immediacy of the performance. Gripping stuff."
and I immediately thought "Thomas Wilson's time has come".Read more ›
