These are quartets of substance from two British composers, both in their late forties. If the Nicholson impresses most through its subtle and resourceful design, the Sackman has the stronger thematic profile – gritty though never arid in its overall impression. Dedicated playing from the Bochmann Quartet, with suitably close, focused sound.
