Dumbarton Quintet Joan Tower; Daedalus Quartet; Blair McMillen. Organic structures underpin her string quartets, three of which are presented here in world premiere recordings by the Daedalus Quartet and the Miami String Quartet. The programme showcases the heat from within and radiance of texture in Incandescent, the virtuosic interplay in Angels and fluid connections in White Water. The album's final piece, Dumbarton Quintet, features pianist Blair McMillen joining the Daedalus ensemble and makes Tower only the third composer, after Stravinsky and Copland, to be commissioned by the Dumbarton Oaks Foundation.
3, 4 & 5. Blair McMillen (piano). Miami String Quartet, Daedalus Quartet. The best example is Incandescent, a pulsating dance of heat and light, brilliantly sustained by the Miami Quartet. Wonderful works for string quartet by Joan Tower that are full of vibrancy as well as intense feeling. Tower: Dumbarton Quintet. Tower: String Quartet No. 5. Label.
