Editorial Reviews


As fresh and fascinating a collection of modern string quartets as I have heard on a single disc. -- Joseph McLellan, The Washington Post, April 3, 1983 [original LP review]

I found the disc a joy throughout. …Music of genuine value...The recording is warm… Well worth picking up! -- John Ditsky, Fanfare, May/June, 1982 [original LP review]

Nicely performed and recorded… I recommend this collection. [remastered CD] -- Lehman, American Record Guide, Jan/Feb 1995

Product Description

This recording is made possible with public funds from The New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency. Additional support provided by The Aaron Copland Fund for Music and The Pennsylvania State Council on the Arts. Cover Tulip Morning: © Jacquelyn Thunfors, 1992. © Leonarda Productions, Inc., 1994.

The Crescent Quartet (Alicia Edelberg, Nancy McAlhany, Jill Jaffe and Maxine Neuman) is comprised of some of New York City's finest musicians. The Quartet has performed in the USA, Germany, France and Mexico, and has been broadcast throughout the world. They appear in the feature film "Nighthawks".

The Alard Quartet (Joanne Zagst, Donald Hopkins, Raymond Page, and Leonard Feldman), acclaimed by audiences on four continents, was for many years affiliated with Pennsylvania State University. They are now retired.

Belgian composer Lucie Vellère (1896-1966) composed 100 works and won the "Prix du Brabant" and an award from the American Section of the International Council for Women.

Sarah Aderholdt (b.1955) received degrees from the University of North Carolina and a PhD from the University of Minnesota. Her works have been performed in the USA, Switzerland, Germany and Poland.

Ruth Schonthal (b.1924) studied at Yale University with Paul Hindemith. Her works have been performed by the Orchestra Nacional de la Universidad de Mexico, Israel Philharmonic, and New Orchestra of Westchester, among others.

American composer Amy Beach (1867-1944) was strongly influenced by German late Romantic music, but also experimented with the fusion of folk and art music. This work incorporates melodies from Franz Boas's "The Central Eskimo", published by the Smithsonian.

Priaulx Rainier (1903-1986) grew up near Zululand. She studied at the South African College of Music and the Royal Academy of Music in London, where she was later appointed Professor of Composition. The BBC recorded and broadcast her complete chamber music.
