Notes & Reviews:

The Cypress String Quartet debuted on AVIE with a recording of their namesake work, Dvo?rak's "Cypresses," coupled with the composer's expansive G major Quartet, No. 13. The Czech composer features again in the ensemble's American Album with his beloved "American" Quartet, which shares the program with Barber's String Quartet - featuring the famous Adagio central movement - "Two Sketches Based on Indian Themes" by Charles Griffes, and Ken Puts' "Lento assai."

Gramophone
Artistry of uncommon insight and cohesion.
