WUORINEN: String Sextet / String Quartet No. 2 / Piano Quintet / Divertimento

For all Charles Wuorinen’s longstanding reputation as a modernist, his musical career has more in common with those of Brahms and Beethoven than with any contemporary model. His music, from his earliest pieces through the more recent masterworks, is a body of work as significant as one is likely to encounter. Wuorinen has long had a well-earned reputation for mastery of unconventional instrumental groupings, but the four chamber works on this disc are all scored for conventional forces – two string quartets, a string sextet and a piano quintet.
