Title: String Quartet No.2 / Seven Glances at a Mirage
Label: Naxos American
Product Type: COMPACT DISCS

Jonathan Leshnoff is one of the most exciting voices in contemporary American music, and his lyricism is accompanied by vibrant expressive qualities. The String Quartet No. 2 reflects the personal qualities of those who commissioned it with originality and vitality, Leshnoff embracing both mystery and Klezmer inspired writing. Seven Glances at a Mirage creates shifting perspectives and contrasted sonorities, whilst Cosmic Variations on a Haunted Theme alternates between hints of Bachian chorales and Bartókinspired drama.... without a chance is a response to 9/11, where abrupt rhythms are movingly resolved. "Leshnoff is excitingly 'the real deal'.' (Fanfare on 8.559398)
