Notes & Reviews:

With the premiere recording of Darius Milhauds Etudes, based on the original synagogue melodies of Provencal Jewry, the world-renowned Juilliard String Quartet leads off this unique collection of five Judaically inspired string quartets. A rich bouquet of Ashkenazi sacred melodies pervades the string quartet by Sholom Secunda, the composer of Yiddish theatrical music. German refugee composer Ruth Schonthal expands the quartet medium with a striking work dedicated to the memory of the murdered victims of the Holocaust. Works by John Zorn and Abraham Wolf Binder complete this unique program.
