Notes & Reviews:

The output of Ruth Crawford was not large. However, as is apparent from the String Quartet, she was a meticulous, imaginative and vital writer. The Quartet, her only such effort, has an extremely fresh and up-tothe- minute sound. This is not easy music; indeed, it sounds as avant-garde as many compositions much its junior. Concise, avoiding any wasted motion, the Quartet is completely accessible to a broad spectrum of today's listeners.
