"This release from Orange Mountain Music features the Dublin Guitar Quartet performing string quartets by Philip Glass on classical guitars. The quartet performed in Ireland with Glass in 2008 and later produced a YouTube video performing Glass's Third String Quartet. The video was seen by Orange Mountain Music which immediately resolved to collaborate with the group. The recital presents Glass's quartets Nos.2, 3, 4 and 5 in arrangements by the members of the group themselves. The transcriptions are thoughtful adaptations that show unusual insight and understanding of the music."
