Notes & Reviews:

Johnston is a pioneer in the use of microtones and non-tempered tuning, rationalizing and going beyond Harry Partchs achievements in this domain. His ten String quartets are among the most fascinating collections of work ever produced by an American composer. Yet these works have remained more known about than known, more talked about than played. This disc is the first in a series of three releases, and presents the String Quartets Nos. 2, 3, 4 & 9.
