Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Stuyvesant Quartet was founded in 1938 by violinist Sylvan Shulman and cellist Alan Shulman, and made its first recording for Victor that year. In 1939, the Quartet began recording for Columbia Records. This CD includes studio recordings of works by Malipiero (recorded in 1950), and Debussy and Ravel (recorded between 1951-53), released for the first time on compact disc. Also featured on this CD is a live broadcast performance of the Stuyvesantís performance of Alan Shulmanís Rendezvous featuring clarinet great Benny Goodman. In 1946, Benny Goodman asked the Quartet to join him playing a movement of the Mozart Clarinet Quintet on his weekly radio program. Alan Shulman suggested instead that Goodman commission him to write a short Read more original work for clarinet and string quartet. Goodman agreed, and Shulman composed Rendezvous with Benny, which was premiered over WEAF in August 1946. The Stuyvesant made their final recordings in 1953 for the groupís own label ñ Philharmonia Records. This CD restores to the catalog key recordings by one of mid-20th century Americaís finest chamber ensembles. Read less
