Notes & Reviews:

This CD brings together all of Xenakis' chamber music for strings for the first time (with the exception of the string quartets). The music spans almost 30 years. These visceral, sonically bold works explore the many possibilities of writing for strings, including dramatic glissandi and extended techniques.
