Notes & Reviews:

"Ge only seems to come back stronger and better every time, and for the moment it seems as there's no stopping him. Naxos' Ge Gan-Ru: Fall of Baghdad focuses on Ge's cycle of string quartets (which in August 2009 was up to five in number)... From the first, this disc makes clear that Ge's string quartet cycle is as strong and substantive at least as Nicolas Bacri's; perhaps as much as Bartok's...ModernWorks sounds so terrific that its dedication to the cause of new music only is almost to be regretted; it would be nice to hear the group do Bartok or Schoenberg. Nevertheless, Naxos' Ge Gan-Ru: Fall of Baghdad, while not for the faint of heart perhaps, will have those who value adventure and an intense musical experience on the edge of their seats" -All Music Guide
