Founded in 1998 at Pro Corda, Suffolk, the multi-award-winning Doric String Quartet describes recording Britten’s quartets as a significant milestone: ‘In our recording we have endeavoured to tread a line that brings out the humanity in these works but also recognises the need for distance and fragility. This is very personal and intimate music, yet also world-encompassing and timeless.’ The Quartet continues: ‘Another feature of this recording is that Hélene Clément, our violist, is playing on Benjamin Britten’s own viola. This instrument (on loan from the Britten- Pears Foundation) was made in 1843 in Milan by Francesco Guissani. It was previously owned by the composer Frank Bridge who gave it to Britten, as a departure gift when Britten and Pears set sail for the USA in 1939.’ Hélene Clément writes: ‘To be able to explore the music of Britten with the very sound that the composer had in his ears is the greatest honour and joy I could have imagined.’

Recording: Concert Hall, Snape Maltings, Suffolk; 15 – 18 October 2018. Hélene Clément, violist of the Doric String Quartet, plays a viola made by Francesco Guissani in 1843, previously owned by Frank Bridge and Benjamin Britten.
