Josef Suk Barcarolle & Ballade - I. Barcarolle

from Debussy, Suk, Cotton by Cypress String Quartet

    The music featured on this disk represents the varied interests of the Cypress String Quartet; a "masterpiece”, an overlooked “jewel”, and a Cypress-commissioned quartet. The Debussy Quartet, written in 1893 in Paris, began a revolution in string writing that ushered in the 20th Century. Composed just a few years earlier but worlds away in Prague, the Suk pieces represent the end of the romantic period. The Jeffery Cotton Quartet, composed for the Cypress in 2003, looks back with respectful fascination at the string quartet tradition and leads us on an inspiring journey that ends in the heart of German Cabaret of the 1920's.
