The Cypresses Play The Cypresses

The Cypress String Quartet

The Cypress String Quartet's cellist, Jennifer Kloetzel, on WRTI's Crossover with Jill Pasternak, Saturday December 28, 2013

This week on Crossover it's the San Francisco-based Cypress String Quartet. The quartet is named after a set of songs by Antonin Dvorak based on the poems of the Moravian author Gustav Pfleger-Moravsky. Up until now, the quartet had not recorded its namesake work.  But that's changed with the Cypress String Quartet's latest release on the Avie label, Dvorak: Cypresses & Op. 106. 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.
