Notes & Reviews:

The Tantalus Guitar Quartet's goal has been to expand the boundaries of the traditional repertoire with new music by award-winning composers, some of which it offers in this recording.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
The Tantalus Quartet plays this material with conviction, imagination, and skill. I'd like to hear them in more traditional repertory. All four of these works are worth getting to know, so anyone interested in expanding the guitar's chamber repertory should get this.
