Stony Brook Soundings, Vol. 1
The estimable Escher String Quartet is the quartet in residence for the Department of Music at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. This CD features the Escher Quartet in the premiere recordings of five new works- four of them quintets featuring a guest artist.
“Oscar Espina Ruiz plays the solo clarinet part magnificently—quite a feat considering the difficulty of the piece. The range of dynamics, the interspersed trills, the octave leaps, and the range of articulations all require concentration. The string quartet also performs admirably.” - American Record Guide
