Works by Henry Cowell, Roy Harris, Andrew Imbrie, Gunther Schuller, and Arthur Shepherd

This 77-minute disc features the renowned Emerson Quartet in five American chamber works, repertoire which they are not normally associated with but which they play superlatively well. The dense, rhythmically complex string writing of the Cowell, Schuller, and Imbrie quartets contrasts with the lush harmonies and lyrical melodies of the Harris and Shepherd works.
