The Ames Piano Quartet, the resident chamber music ensemble at Iowa State University, holds a unique position in the chamber music field as one of the few piano quartets in the world. The combination of their lush string sound, blended with the orchestral quality of the piano, produces an exquisite and rare sonority that The Washington Post aptly described as "one of the most heavenly combinations of instruments around."

This set, which contains passionate and brilliant interpretations of some of the greatest music in the piano quartet repertoire, embodies all of the releases by the ensemble over the last 20 years on Dorian Recordings, plus a bonus CD of two works that have never before been released on Dorian.
