Title: Solitude
Label: Resonus Classics
Product Type: COMPACT DISCS

For their third album for the Resonus Classics label, the acclaimed Dudok Quartet Amsterdam releases a new recording based around the theme of solitude. Recently announced as recipients of a prestigious Borletti-Buitoni Award for 2018, the quartet presents a varied programme inspired by loss and feelings of loneliness, such as Mendelssohn's Op. 80 'Requiem for Fanny' and music by the isolated Soviet composers, Shostakovich and Weinberg who both sacrificed much in pursuit of their art. The Dudok Quartet studied with the Alban Berg Quartet in Cologne and subsequently, for two years, at the Dutch String Quartet Academy with Marc Danel of Quatuor Danel, graduating with highest distinction in 2013. Between 2011 and 2013, the quartet was awarded top prizes in international string quartet competitions such as Quatuors a Bordeaux and Joseph Joachim Weimar. In 2014 the quartet received the Kersjes Prize, an award offered to a chamber music group of exceptional talent. The Quartet performs on four top quality instruments on generous loan from the Dutch Musical Instrument Foundation.
