Great and different interpretations
WHAT a surprise, "Boolez" didn't like a Philip Glass record (again).
This is actually a nice collection and very different from the Kronos, Carducci, and Smith Quartet versions. Plus this adds the world premiere recording of Suite from BENT for String Quartet.
This group is the farthest thing from 'some string quartet'! I saw them perform live at my college two weeks ago and they blew EVERYONE out of the water with their personal and intimate performance. At the concert they played the 'Bent' suite and I fell in love. Earlier in the day the group worked a master class with my saxophone quartet and we performed Glass' Saxophone Quartet. They had so much insight to offer with his music that one could only amass after recording all of Glass' string music. They are some of the best!
