Catalogue Number: 01T023
Description: We missed this one last May! Delius was dissatisfied with the first, three-movement version of his Quartet and revised the score. On this recording the final 1917 version is followed by the original versions of the opening movement and of the Late Swallows slow movement (the latter having wholly different material in its outer sections), offering a rare glimpse into Delius's compositional workshop. Villiers Quartet.
