Michael Hersch (b.1971): Images from a Closed Ward / Blair String Quartet

Album Summary

>Hersch, Michael : Images from a Closed Ward, for string quartet
Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Inspiration for Michael Hersch's tone poem came by way of Michael Mazur's haunting 1960's images of inmates from a Rhode Island psychiatric hospital. The work finds a genuine grain of human experience in a dark, difficult place. The highly regarded Blair String Quartet, who gave the work's premiere and for whom it was written, deliver a definitive account. 'It is the sound of a string quartet playing with rage and inconsolable sadness.' -ArtNowNashville
