Notes & Reviews:

The recording of James Willey’s String Quartets Nos. 3, 7 and 8, marks the culmination of a decades-long partnership between the composer and the Esterhazy Quartet, which began in 1977 with the Quartet’s performance of his String Quartet No. 1. Since then the Esterhazy Quartet has performed and recorded all eight of the composer’s works in this genre. Aided by this long, closely-knit collaboration in which ideas, revisions and artistic inspiration would flow back and forth between composer and performers, James Willey has created one of the most beautiful and personally expressive canons of string quartets in the latter part of the 20th century.
