Cecilia String Quartet, the winner of 2010 Banff International String Quartet Competition (BISQC) debut their CD with Dvorak Op.106. This quartet based in Canada provided another point of view on Dvorak's second most important quartet, after his American quartet. Cecilia String Quartet choice is purely agreeable since their playing seems enthusias and playful, the happiness and melancholy parts are distinguish. One should forget the all female interpretation here and enjoy the universal work they done. A rich addition to the repertoire that decades away from the benchmark Prague String Quartet recording. The CD coupling also put in six Cypresses and Waltzes a genre which Dvorak put in the best for the string quartet.
