Notes & Reviews:

"The piece which for me is the stunner is the 1994 string quartet Meta 4 (the composer obviously loves puns!). This piece fascinates me on several levels... a fluid blend of post-minimalist with neo-Romantic technique... Any listener who likes new American Romanticism will want to buy this disc. For me, the string quartet is worth the price of admission, no matter what your taste. The performances are of high quality, though there are a few moments in the quartet, especially in the unison writing, where intonation seems a little dubious. Fortunately, this seems only to enhance the romantic "straining" behind the notes. The Trio I recording is a historic live performance of 1979, and while there's more hiss, it's otherwise not too distracting." - Fanfare
