Julia Wolfe

The String Quartets

Bang on a Can Co-Founder Julia Wolfe has turned the string quartet world upside down with these ferociously fresh quartets. Played by three of Americas finest young groups, the quartets have been exciting audiences, quartets and critics for the last ten years. Defying classification, Wolfe turns the string quartet into a relentless high voltage vehicle of expression. Beautifully recorded and produced by Michael Reisman (Philip Glass).

"This string quartet recording demonstrates her ability to inject new energy into old forms and avoid easy categorization." -Josef Woodard, Los Angeles Times
