Notes & Reviews:

"The high point [of the St. Petersburg Quartet's L.A. debut] was Nadarejshvili's Quartet, in its West Coast premiere...powerful and atmospheric...somewhat reminiscent of Estonian Arvo Part's music. Its three movements are framed by pensive, sublime sections in which haunting drone tones blend with broken shards of Georgian folk themes. In the middle section, animation yields to agitation, in a polytonal manner bowing to Stravinsky...a bold, moving dose of music." -L.A. Times
