Artists: Alexander String Quartet
Composer: Cindy Cox
Label: Foghorn Classics
This is ASQ’s second recording of Cindy Cox’s first quartet, Columba aspexit, a stunningly difficult yet delicately spiritual work of exquisite beauty. The 2nd Quartet, Patagón, was written at the request of, and dedicated to, the Alexander String Quartet on the occasion of their 30th Anniversary. Cindy wrote this powerfully evocative work chronicling her sabbatical year spent partly amongst some of Argentina’s most splendid natural sea- and landscapes celebrating the uniquely inspiring wildlife.
