One might be forgiven for finding the title 'Composing America' a tad ambitious - it begs a number of questions, not the least of which is “just whose America is this?”

The music on this varied CD gives some answers to that question: this is an America of vital concert music with roots deep in the American vernacular. Each work, to varying degrees, presents the listener with a distinct transformation of the popular and folk music that have defined America.

Promising to deliver “a performance of grace, proportion and burnished brilliance” (The Washington Post), the Lark Quartet continues to delight audiences with its energy, commitment and artistry.
