“The pianist was joined by the Annex Quartet, with Roberto Occhipinti, double bass, in a collegial presentation of Franz Liszt’s transcription of the work. There was beautiful balance, a great sense of proportion in the relationship between the soloist and a small ensemble, neither side “outshouting” the other.” -The Beat Magazine
“And before the Patria excerpts, the young members of the Annex String Quartet beautifully rendered Schafer’s Quartet No. 5, reminding us that Schafer’s expansive mystical Romanticism has its basis in a very fine and well-developed lyrical sense.”
Welcome to the official website of The Annex Quartet! This year we commemorate our fifth year anniversary through the release our début album entitled “The Roaring Twenties.”
