Alexander Melnikov (piano), Jerusalem Quartet (Harmonia Mundi)
...The Jerusalem Quartet, who last month won their third BBC Music magazine award for a recent Mozart recording, are at the peak of their career, still youthful yet playing with the wisdom of 20 years' experience. In the Russian pianist Alexander Melnikov they have a collaborator of rare musical intelligence as well as virtuosity. Another award contender? I guess so.
