With two violins, two violas, two cellos and piano, the Aronowitz has a wealth of music to choose from, yet prior to its formation there were no works for that combination.

Their second disc centres around a recent commission, Martin Suckling's "To See the Dark Between", which has something of the effervescence of Mendelssohn's String Quintet No 2. Most notable, though, is how smoothly it opens into a soulful reading of Dvorák's Piano Quintet in A.
