'The combination of harmonica and string quartet might seem eccentric, but the effect is often charming and whimsical. The former’s association with jazz cafes and bluesy folk music gently encourages the strings to indulge in lush, relaxed sounds. A breath of fresh air indeed!' BBC Music Magazine

The three British composers in this programme all found very different ways to integrate the harmonica with that most aristocratic of ensembles, the string quartet. Gordon Jacob’s Divertimento is a delicious musical tableau, full of his characteristic melodic ease and playfulness. James Moody was devoted to the harmonica, for which he wrote a number of works, and his Quintet has a Classical structure that includes both highly virtuosic and deeply introspective episodes. Renowned as a jazz drummer, Tony Kinsey adopted a late-Romantic stance in his Quintet but also looked to Gershwin and Piazzolla, ending the work with the blues and an unforgettably catchy riff.
