"The disc starts with the Lydian String Quartet tearing into the opening notes of Hyla's String Quartet #4 (1999) as if it had insulted their mother. It feels like we're in the middle of something already in progress, and it takes a moment for us to get our bearings. The music goes in fits and starts, but over time the fits get longer and the starts blur together. And after a couple of minutes the language starts to become clear and we can see where we're coming from, if not where we're being taken." Galen H. Brown,
