One of the first recordings to be made in the Music Room at Champs Hill, this recording of the piano quartet and quintet by Hermann Goetz (1840-1876), this was originally licensed to ASV, and has not been available for some years.

Champs Hill are delighted to make this recording with the famous Pro-Arte Quartet available to a new audience: Kenneth Sillito (violin), Robert Smissen (viola), Stephen Orton (cello), Hamish Milne (piano), with Paul Marrion (Double Bass) in the quintet.

The Pro Arte Piano Quartet was formed in 1989 by members of the renowned Academy of St. Martin in the Fields Chamber Ensemble. Its repertoire includes lesser-known quartets by Schnittke, Walton, Douglas Weiland and Sally Burgess (especially commissioned for the Pro Arte) alongside the familiar masterpieces of Beethoven, Brahms, Dvořák, Fauré, Mozart and Schumann. The Strad commented that “the quartet is a group that – with total musical assurance – quietly produces concerts of exceptional calibre”.
