The unique conductorless string orchestra performs arrangements for string orchestra, live from Benarova Hall in Seattle.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
The American String Project is a conductorless string orchestra that plays mostly arrangements of quartets. The arrangements are very good. The addition of bass to the four parts is quite effective. All of this works very well. This is a rich sound, and if you're interested in hearing these works played in this way, it might be worth hearing.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Benaroya Hall, Illsley Ball Nordstrom Recital Hall (05/2011).
