San Francisco-based Cypress String Quartet, known equally for its innovation and its elegant performances, debuts on AVIE with a recording of its namesake work, Dvorák’s Cypresses, a set of 12 love songs scored for string quartet, coupled with the composer’s expansive G major Quartet, No. 13. Known internationally through touring and a dozen acclaimed recordings, the Cypress String Quartet traverses repertoire from J.S. Bach – the composer with which the foursome forged their signature, clear and transparent sound – to world-premieres of works they have commissioned from such composers as Jennifer Higdon, Kevin Puts and Elena Ruehr. In addition to appearances in such renowned venues as the Kennedy Center, the Ravinia Festival and Cal Performances, the Quartet reaches out to new audiences through regular performances in community centers, unorthodox spaces, and schools. The Cypress String Quartet’s AVIE debut is the first in a projected series of recordings for the label.

"... A fine disc, recommended primarily for Cypresses."

James H North - Fanfare - July/August 2013

 "... I have very much enjoyed getting to know these performances and, with a detailed and lifelike recording ... I’m able to recommend them confidently to collectors interested in the programme ..."
