Quartet New Generation: Debut a Hit with CDBaby

Just like their live program, “Ethereal” has turned into a bipolar affair. On the one and, there’s the 16th century repertoire, in which the Quartet New Generation explores the freshness and contemporary edge of a music hundreds of years old. And then there are the collaborations with young composers, who have turned into a trademark for the band. Especially Venice-born Italian composer G. Mancuso is represented with a plethora of new material.

First reactions have shown the potential this seemingly uncommercial and niche-oriented music has: Deutschlandradio Kultur featured the Quartet New Generation and “Ethereal” with a special and the important online retailer CDBaby was so impressed by the amount of orders the album received that it decided to post it on their first page for a few days.

As one of the CD Baby reviewers put it: “QNG has demonstrated with excitement the fact that the recorder is indeed, a viable contemporary instrument deserving of new repertoire.” It would seem about time we asked for a promo copy and found out about that ourselves!
