In this high flying new recording the GRAMMY® winning Turtle Island Quartet looks to draw analogy to the visionary brilliance of Charlie Parker, who took jazz from pop style into art music, with its own continuing aspirations to similarly redefine the foundational parameters of the traditional string quartet form, in a sense coming from the other direction. Grammy-nominated composer David Balakrishnan contributes his newly commissioned work, "Aeroelasticity: Harmonies Of Impermanence.” Since its inception in 1985, the Turtle Island Quartet has been a singular force in the creation of bold, new trends in chamber music for strings. Turtle Island fuses the classical quartet esthetic with contemporary American musical styles, and by devising a performance practice that honors both, the state of the art has inevitably been redefined.
