Work Title


The purely functional title of Simon Holt’s 3rd Quartet may not give anything away, but its six short movements come with titles of their own that connect with a range of stories and cultural references, real and imagined. Yet the vividness of the music itself, with its typical fondness for extremes of register, nervy, dislocated rhythms, and sudden moments of stasis, is totally compelling on its own abstract terms, too, especially when played so superbly by the JACK Quartet.
Andrew Clenents, The Guardian, 5/17/2017

Edgy and unpredictable, [Holt's] quartet is as invigorating as a shower of ice-cold water.
Pwyll ap Siôn, The Gramophone, 8/1/2017
