About this Recording

POST, D.L.: String Quartets Nos. 2-4 / Fantasia on a Virtual Choral (Hawthorne String Quartet)

‘The string quartet has always seemed to me to be the pinnacle of musical expression,’ remarks David L. Post, an American composer who makes ‘this modest ensemble sing in seemingly impossible ways’ (Fanfare). Whether inspired by the artistry of celebrated Massachusetts photographer Abelardo Morell (String Quartet No. 4) or Josef Suk’s beloved Meditation on the Old Czech Chorale Saint Wenceslas, Post’s music is notable for its approachability, clarity and humanity. Since its inception in 1986 the Hawthorne String Quartet has performed extensively throughout Europe, South America, Japan and the United States.

Post, David L.
