Bruno Mantovani’s latest string quartet, completed in 2015, was written for and dedicated to the Signum Quartet.

The French composer’s fascination with narrative structures and the ebb and flow of drama is boldly stated in his new work, presented here in harness with one of Haydn’s groundbreaking Op. 20 quartets and Beethoven’s thrilling final ‘Razumovsky’ Quartet.
