AllMusic Review by

Amazing performances by the renowned Arditti String Quartet. Pieces that illustrate the best of his early and later styles...the dense "abstract expressionist" complexity of the 3rd Quartet...instrumental conversations...and the unpredictable but warm, advanced-Coplandesque harmonies of the "Elegy."
