New Music for String Quartet

Saturday, May 07, 2011

Hear a lot of new music for string quartet on this New Sounds.  Listen to Raz Mesinai’s  work for string quartet and four turntables where the string instruments are recorded and then manipulated by DJs, resulting in a hybrid of composition and turntablism.  Then there’s music by Steve Reich, his haunting Triple Quartet, which can be a string section of 36 players, three string quartets, or string quartet and pre-recorded tape.
