"A CD of four wonderful contemporary string quartets is difficult to come by, but here is a glowing example of such."

-W. Maxwell Derrickson, High Performance Review



"Works by two American composers and one British composer are included on this Music & Arts compact disc by the Sequoia String Quartet. Music & Arts has been quietly issuing recordings of new American music.



These discs are fine recordings by excellent ensembles, and Music & Arts is serving contemporary American composers very well.



Although not originally recorded digitally, the sound is warm and present, and liner notes by producer Dorothy Crawford are excellent. This is a highly recommended disc."

-Douglas B. Moore - Williams College, American Music
