Notes & Reviews:

The immediate cause for this CD is the direction Cage gave in his score of the String Quartet in Four Parts: "Play without vibrato and with only minimum weight on the bow." It inspired Frank Agsteribbe to arrange this work, originally written for modern string quartet, for Baroque string orchestra instead. It is only to be expected that a Baroque orchestra like B'Rock would take up this project: right from the start it was the group's aim to present not only Baroque music, but also 20th-century and new repertory. This results in a different, refreshing approach to early music, and one that is full of imagination.
