In this release we have a very lovely and entertaining recital by the Quartet San Francisco recorded by “Prof” Keith Johnson… The music selected by QSF encompasses a range of styles reflecting their love for the string quartet in all it’s many variations. Beginning with Jeremy Cohen’s Tango Eight, then Helmut Lispsky’s Fiesta!, and continuing with an arrangement of Gershwin’s Rhaspsody in Bluegrass, this is a most enjoyable romp. The music is light, tight and fun…
Did I say this album was fun!? Yes, it is. Fun, entertaining, occasionally impish, and nicely diverse—just an overall good time.
Plus, it is beautifully recorded. One of “Prof” Johnson’s best efforts, in my opinion. The 24/176.4kHz digital resolution is clean, open, extended and very dynamic. This is the sound of a string quartet captured delightfully well.
