Album Remarks & Appraisals:

American Record Guide, September/October 2015

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
The Nonesuch release, as far as I can tell, will appear only as part of a five-disc box set collecting previous Kronos Quartet performances of Riley along with new recordings. The performances are, as usual, beautiful, with superb engineering and production.

There is, for instance, Cry of a Lady, a piece written for a collaboration between Kronos and The Bulgarian State Television Female Vocal Choir; the inimitable timbre of the singers dominates the texture, which otherwise consists of a noodly string accompaniment. A recording of Alice Walker's voice appears intermittently, intoning the title of the work many, many times: this seems meant to galvanize the piece's impression as a 9-11 memorial, and also thereby to immunize itself from criticism.
