 Thought provoking music by Harbison from Centaur February 13, 2015 By Philip L. (Greensboro, NC) See All My Reviews "Followers and and newcomers alike to the music of John Harbison will not be disappointed by this release from the Centaur label. Beautifully and thoughtfully interpreted by the Lydian String Quartet (who have a close relationship with the composer), these works are not for casual listening. However, given due notice, the receptive listener will be accorded musical experiences that tease and provoke intellect and heart alike. The recording is excellent; very natural string tone and a pleasing sense of intimate space, internal balance, and believable dynamics." Report Abuse
