This recital with the Lindsay String Quartet was recorded live at the Wigmore Hall, London and includes Haydn's Quartet, "The RIder", Tippett's Quartet No. 3 (premiered at Wigmre Hall on October 19, 1946) and Elgar's Quartet in E Minor, Op. 83 (premiered at Wigmore Hall)

The Lindsaus have a special relationship with the music Sir Michael Tippett and have recorded all his string quartets. They gave the world premiere of the Fourth in 1979, and commissioned and premiered the Fifth in Sheffield in May 1992.

The quartet plays on a remarkable set of instruments: Peter Cropper on a Stradivarius from the Golden Period and Robin Ireland on a Mori Costa viola c. 1810, while Ronald Birks and Bernard-Gregor Smith are fortunate to be loaned the Campo Selice Stradivarius of 1694 and a Ruggieri cello of the same year.
