Launch Pad est le premier CD du Penderecki String Quartet consacré exclusivement à de nouveaux quatuors canadiens commandés par le PSQ. Au cours des cinq années qu’a exigées la réalisation de ce projet, nous avons collaboré étroitement avec les compositeurs et les organisateurs de concerts pour mettre en valeur la nature et l’intention de ces œuvres aux divers stades de leur lancement. Nous avons choisi des compositeurs issus de formations et de milieux très variés (le Yukon, Vancouver, Edmonton et Toronto), et ils ont créé pour nous des œuvres rigoureuses dans leur propos, qui mettent clairement en évidence le style personnel de chacun. – Penderecki String Quartet

"The Penderecki String Quartet is a tight unit with a daring flair and a sense of adventure."
- Stanley Fefferman, Showtime Magazine

"This 'best of the best' does not disappoint. The works are as varied as the regions of the country in which their musical authors reside...The performances of the works by the Quartet are exemplary and the overall sound and editing superbly engineered. This disc is a keeper."

- Jerry A. Ozipko, Musicworks

"There is an interesting diversity of sound and style here from five established mid-career composers...This disc features definitive and stunning performances in all respects by the PSQ."
- Terry Robbins, Wholenote Magazine

"Overall, Launch Pad is a well-constructed album marked with unique and musically intriguing moments."
- Andrew Buziak, La Scena Musicale
