Though active only since 1995, the Flux String Quartet has already emerged as one of today's most adventurous string quartets in the realm of contemporary music. The Julliard-trained ensemble has won considerable praise from New York critics for its dynamic performances. On this episode of New Sounds, we hear their performances of Theodore Wiprud's "Incarnations" and James MacMillan's "Why Is This Night Different?" Also on the show are selections by the Chamber Choir Versija, Ella Leya, and Janice Giteck.
