This remarkable canon of works here receives advocacy of the highest order: equally at home in the instantly approachable early quartets as the more challenging sixth and seventh, the Silesian Quartet brings admirable focus, determination and concentration to every bar. The present set is at least the equal of the Lutosławski’s pioneering cycle, although that comes at Naxos price. Readers unfamiliar with Bacewicz’s always individual music, who perhaps relish the quartets of Ravel, Shostakovich and Bartók, would be happy with either.
