RING OF FIRE

 Music from the Pacific Rim

 “…masters of all musical things they survey on this disc” – GRAMOPHONE MAGAZINE

“Take a musical tour of the Pacific Rim via the Del Sol String Quartet’s ear opening new album ‘Ring of Fire.’ There are still plenty of awkward East-West fusions out there, but you won’t find them in this bracing sampler, performed with sensitivity and flair.”
– THE BOSTON GLOBE

“…a powerful and diverse compilation of recent work by Pacific Rim composers…What binds them all is a shared sense of moral urgency, as well as a determination to step outside the norms of European quartet writing.”
– SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE

Home to earthquake swarms and volcanic eruptions, the countries of the Pacific Rim also produce some of the world’s most groundbreaking composers. The CD “Ring of Fire” leads an inspiring seven-country tour:  People’s Republic of China, Cambodia, New Zealand, Peru, South Korea, Australia, and the San Francisco Bay Area. 

 (Music by Kui Dong, Chinary Ung, Jack Body, Gabriela Lena Frank, Hyo-shin Na, Zhou Long, John Adams, Peter Sculthorpe, and an improvisation by the Del Sol String Quartet)
