I must say that I was very much impressed with what Mr. Glass and the Kronos Quartet put together. At first listen the melodies can seem simple, but as you settle into the Glass style you will find subtle nuances to the harmonies and counter points that allow the ear to follow new themes with every listen. I have heard some criticisms of the the simplicity of No. 3 and listened carefully with the critiques in mind; I believe the criticism is warranted, however those that listen to Glass regularly should be used to his use of repetition to build trance like intrigue and given the brilliance of the man I give him the benefit of the doubt that this was his intent. In my opinion Glass is one of the great contemporary composers and the Kronos Quartet to be the perfect technical compliment to his unique style. This is a must have for any contemporary classical collection.


Brilliant. Anyone who enjoys listening to classical music will be enamoured with the Kronos Quartet. I, myself, am a big fan of the String Quartet No. 5: I-V.
