Notes & Reviews:

On this new set from Orange Mountain, the fast-rising New York-based ensemble Brooklyn Rider performs the complete works for string quartet by Philip Glass. The set includes the world première recording of a suite from Glass' score to Sean Mathias' 1997 film Bent, which starred Mick Jagger, Clive Owen and Ian McKellen. Most of Glass' string quartets are programmatic in nature. The second quartet was written for the Samuel Beckett play Company and the third accompanied Paul Schrader's film on the life of Japanese writer Yukio Mishima. The fourth is an elegy in remembrance of artist Paul Buczak. Glass' remarkable first quartet was an early work, written in 1966.
