We've had a busy few months here in the Laefer Quartet with performances at Lincoln's Inn Chapel, St Boniface Concert Society, and several private functions. On top of this we were lucky enough to be invited to record with Chris Cook at the Abbey Road Institute. Chris is currently studying at the Institute and asked us to record some tracks for his portfolio and we were happy to oblige!
We decided to record Eugene Bozza's Andate et Scherzo and the Capriccio from Felix Mendelssohn's Four Pieces for String Quartet Op. 81 keeping one live take of each and mixing a final take as well. As it was the first time in the studio as a quartet we were pretty excited to see what the outcome would be, especially as our busy individual schedules meant that we only had one evening to do all the recording! A week later Rusne, Amy and I went back to the studio to go through the takes and sort out the final mix with Chris.
Below are some pictures from the session and we hope to have the recordings up soon.
