 Kronos Quartet September 20, 2012 By M. Rood (Portland, OR) See All My Reviews "Heard track 3, "Tilliboyo" ("Sunset"), on our local All Classical radio station & loved it so decided to purchase the CD, not really knowing if I'd like the rest of the cuts.........well, the entire recording is terrific! It's a very nice addition to my music library." Report Abuse
