The Del Sol Quartet is a string quartet based in San Francisco, California. Del Sol is known for actively working with living composers from a wide range of cultural perspectives, and recording and performing exclusively 20th and 21st century music. This CD from Sono Luminus included composers —Gabriela Lena Frank, Lou Harrison, José Evangelista, Reza Vali and Elena Kats-Chernin. Gabriela Lena Frank and Lou Silver Harrison are American composers, José Evangelista  is a Spanish composer,  Reza Vali  is an Iranian composer, Elena Kats-Chernin was born in Tashkent, they all trained in the Western European tradition, reach back to ancient and traditional folk music sources and cultures from Peru, Turkey, Spain, Iran, and  Uzbekistan in creating vibrant new music for string quartet. The five contemporary composers on this CD are deeply tied to the Western European music tradition–especially its system of notation–they draw on ancient and traditional folk music from four corners of the world and make it new by incorporating techniques such as inventive intonations or heterophony.

  1. It’s actually very complicated in this active life to listen news on TV, therefore I just use the web for that purpose, and get the most up-to-date information.
