Notes & Reviews:

"These recalcitrant, fascinating, and in their own way eloquent quartets will repay the listener willing to give them the time and attention they demand. At every hearing I'm more convinced that they are among the more significant works in this hallowed genre written by an American. Kudos are due the Lydian Quartet for rescuing Persichetti's quartets from undeserved obscurity. The group has also, I should add, recorded three of William Schuman's quartets on Harmonia Mundi 907114 (Nov/Dec 1994). They play both composers with admirable sensitivity, dedication, and assurance, if not always the last word in articulative bite and energy." -ARG
