Cypress String Quartet http://wrti.org en The Cypresses Play The Cypresses http://wrti.org/post/cypresses-play-cypresses <p>This week on Crossover it's the San Francisco-based <a href="http://cypressquartet.com/" target="_blank"><strong>Cypress String Quartet</strong>.</a> The quartet is named after a set of songs by Antonin Dvorak&nbsp;based on the poems of the Moravian author Gustav Pfleger-Moravsky. Up until now, the quartet had not recorded its namesake work. &nbsp;But that's changed with the Cypress String Quartet's latest release on the Avie label, <a href="http://cypressquartet.com/2013/01/dvorak-cypresses-op-106/" target="_blank"><strong><em>Dvorak: Cypresses &amp; Op. 106</em>. </strong></a>Aside from the Cypresses for String Quartet, which is a cycle of miniatures inspired by unrequited love, the CD also has a performance of Dvorak's expansive String Quartet No. 13 in G Major, Opus 106.
