Two major works for string quartet which both present structured, yet "polystylistic" forms- attuned to the modern ear, which is used to hearing "sound bites" - and what Schwartz calls "collage-oriented".  It is rare to find music written with so much emphasis on the listener.

“George Rochberg’s Third Quartet from 1972 is a masterpiece that rejects serial modernism, going beyond quotation in a revival of the styles of Mahler and Beethoven. The Quartet is no postmodern pastiche either… powerful advocacy from The Kreutzer Quartet.”
