This is the third Toccata Classics album of the chamber music of Gerard Schurmann, born in the former Dutch East Indies in 1924, British citizen through wartime service in the RAF and now resident in Los Angeles. His two piano quartets, downstream from Bartók, Shostakovich and Britten, present a wide range of moods, from broad and stately tempos to passages of driving energy and excitement. Their quasi-symphonic ambit is contrasted with the tart miniatures of the Serenade for solo violin and the tail-chasing vivacity of Two Violins.
