Diotima String Quartet

The latest CD release from the Diotima String Quartet, American Music, is simply amazing. Clean, clear, articulate, and musical.

It is refreshing to hear a European interpretation of twentieth century American classics.

Their recording of Different Trains for String Quartet and Tape by Steve Reich reaffirms him as a genius of minimalism.

Their goose-bump inducing Molto Adagio by Samuel Barber clocks in at an exquisite 8:34  (for you people that like to keep track of different versions).

New recordings of Black Angels don’t come along very often and this one is brilliant. I really like how they split up the tracks into the smaller segments rather than just I, II, III.

American Music is available via iTunes for only $10.99 USD.
