Hermann’s Clarinet Quintet and Echoes Quartet are elegiac works of immediate melodic appeal. Their romantic style is eclectic, akin to Hermann’s classical compositions for larger forces, but their lack of aggressive ‘modernity’ produces memorable twentieth-century pieces of expressive writing.

‘The Amici Quartet catches the self-gnawing nerve and sudden, macabre explosions of the work. This is music from the psychoanalyst’s couch – probing, worrying, obsessive, self-reproachful.’ Classical.net
