Longbow is a collective of some of today’s most virtuosic and inventive string players, specialising in multi-player ensemble works. They have made critically acclaimed recordings for the Naxos, Toccata, and Métier labels. Their recent recording of David Gorton’s ‘Lachrymae Variations’ resulted in an argument between the presenters of Radio 3’s ‘Record Release’ as to who should be allowed to take the disc home!
