AllMusic Review by

Performed by the Arditti String Quartet. Includes the three microintervallic string quartets, a Composition (op.43), and a Trio (op.53). A pioneer (with Willy Moellendorf, Joerg Mager, Alois Haba and Fredrich Trautwein) in quarter-tone and "ultrachromatic" music...the "Trio" with its tone leaps that collapse into each other, and, the first Quartet are probably the most unique discoveries.
