Parlour Games

Jade String Quartet

Rich in variety, colour, mood, and texture, beautifully performed, produced, and engineered, Jade String Quartet’s Parlour Games is set to be one of Rattle’s strongest releases of 2017.

“We simply adore the commissions on this album, all written by great New Zealand composers and displaying extraordinary range, variety, and colour. The opportunity to record and release this material on Rattle is fantastic, and we’re very grateful to Creative New Zealand, the Wallace Foundation, and the good folk at Rattle for helping to make this project happen”.
