New Release: Cypress Quartet

The San Francisco based Cypress String Quartet is about to release their Beethoven String Quartet cycle (August 25th) with volume 1 containing Opus 131 and Opus 135.
Cecily, Tom, Ethan and Jennifer recently spoke with host John Clare about the new recording.

Here's a hd video of the quartet in concert last April, celebrating 10 years of Call and Response, that also included Beethoven's Opus 135.

You can get the new Cypress cd or download here.

Of course, we also love the "Moose Quartet" by PDQ Bach, who will visit South Texas next April with Peter Schickele, seen here:

Had to share that since the finale of the Beethoven asks the question, Muss es sein? (Must it be?)
