Performer Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The Cypress String Quartet is a "wonderful ensemble" (Gramophone) whose "extremely fine playing" (Classical Reviewer) has lent itself to music of Dvo?rak and contemporary Americans on their recordings for AVIE. They now turn to core 19th-century fare, some of the greatest chamber music ever written: Schubert's single-movement "Quartettsatz," and the composer's final chamber work, the enduring String Quintet, joined by eminent Canadian cellist Gary Hoffman. The Cypress' elegant, clear signature sound lends itself perfectly to these two masterworks.

Gramophone
Artistry of uncommon insight and cohesion.

The Washington Post
Beautifully proportioned and powerful.
