Description
These dynamic, accomplished, and imaginative musicians perform the Scherzo from Schickele's String Quartet No. 2, “In Memoriam”; Moravec’s Atmosfera a Villa Aurelia and Vince & Jan: 1945; a selection of Gershwin songs, and Roumain’s String Quartet No. 5, “Rosa Parks” (the latter featured on All Things Considered).

“This is the sort of programming a lot of groups are currently doing, mixing up styles and periods, but all with a tilt toward popular American musical traditions. It distinguishes itself from the pack, though, by both a certain savviness of programming, and fabulous performance…. Moravec is a composer who’s never hid his Romantic temperament, and these two tone poems are two of his most affecting essays. Atmosfera a Villa Aurelia has the richly perfumed sound one associates with both Griffes and Respighi, while Vince & Jan is a tribute to the composer’s parents, a heartbreaking ode using the song ‘I’ll Be Seeing You’…. The Gershwin arrangements … are sophisticated, witty, and can get down and dirty, too. That latter quality is enhanced by the Lark’s sound, which can really dig into the bluesy qualities of the songs. Simultaneously they can make the melodies really “sing”; I’ve been a particular fan of Maria Bachmann’s playing for years, and she can get a dark mezzo-ish sound from her fiddle that grabs your attention immediately.”—Fanfare
