". . . They have everything: a supreme technical command that seems to come easily, a capacity to make complicated music clear, and, most notably . . . an ability to cast a magic spell." - The New York Times

Spektral is “...highly-interactive, creative and collaborative ... unlike anything its intended audience – or anyone else – has ever heard.”  – Gramophone  


Mendelssohn's Quartet Op. 12 in E-flat Major: III. Andante espressivo
