Lauded Young American Quartet Make Their Naxos Debut

October 16, 2007

From October 1 to 5, a program of music by György Ligeti was recorded by the Parker String Quartet at St. Anne's Church in Toronto, Canada. Recorded were Ligeti’s two string quartets, No.1 Métamorphoses nocturnes (1953-54) and No. 2 (1968), along with the Andante and Allegro for string quartet (1950). Winners of the 2005 Concert Artists Guild Competition and 2005 Bordeaux International String Quartet Competition, the Parker Quartet has been described by the New York Times as "something extraordinary", offering "flawlessly balanced, perfectly tuned and sheathed in lustrous textures". The Boston Globe has hailed the Quartet's "fiercely committed performances". The recording was produced and engineered by Norbert Kraft and Bonnie Silver.
