Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"This remarkable release of Quincy Porter's nine string quartets (plus a few smaller works for the same forces) should help to establish the composer as a force to be reckoned with in the world of American chamber music The engineering flatters the players, and in particular captures the violins in some very high positions without any scratchiness or glare, a tribute to the group's accuracy of intonation as well. Here is a truly important as well as really appealing release that all serious chamber-music fanciers will want to sample." -Classics Today
