The Fells' journey through Eastern Europe takes in sophisticated reworkings of Bartók and earthy reimaginings of klezmer, and introduces some unfamiliar names along the way. The four clarinets lend a wonderfully suggestive reediness to these laments and dances which enhances the music's rustic tone. With the Fell Quartet as your guide, this whirlwind tour of Eastern Europe is sure to be seductive, virtuosic, and not without some moments of real grit.

‘Their style is electrifyingly unanimous ... ice-cool virtuosity and moody whispers that colour in equal measure.'
- The Scotsman, April 2008

‘An incredible sound ... slick ensemble ... beautifully expressive playing. The ensemble gives a flawless performance ... the quality of the repertoire is matched by the quality of the playing. This is a group with a bright future.'
- MusicWeb International, August 2008 (CD of the Month)
