Notes & Reviews:

The San Francisco-based Cypress String Quartet, known equally for its innovation and its elegant performances, debuts on AVIE with a recording of its namesake work, a set of 12 love songs scored for string quartet, coupled with the composer's expansive G major Quartet, No. 13. Known internationally through touring and a dozen acclaimed recordings, the Cypress String Quartet traverses repertoire from J.S. Bach to world premieres of works they have commissioned from such composers as Jennifer Higdon, Kevin Puts, and Elena Ruehr.
