If you have a taste for contemporary chamber music, this CD should appeal to you. The music herein, despite the composer's adventurous harmonic palette on Quartets 3 & 4, is both inviting and arresting due to Post's imaginative textural, motivic and rhythmic ideas. Quartet no. 2 and Fantasia on a Virtual Choral will acclimate you nicely to the two other quartets which, tend to be a little more challenging. The playing of the Hawthorne Quartet, which comprises members of the Boston Symphony, is exemplary, as is the recorded sound.
-David
