The Indianapolis Quartet is set to release the world premiere recording of composer Robert Paterson’s first three string quartets. The album, on American Modern Recordings, is out on July 15. Called a “modern day master” by the New York Times, Robert Paterson wrote his first quartet in 2000, the second in 2019, and the third in 2020. When the Indianapolis Quartet premiered the third quartet at Carnegie Hall in 2020, it was hailed as a “tour de force of tight ensemble and interplay” by New York Classical Review. That performance inspired Paterson and the quartet to pursue a complete recording of all his music for string quartet to date.
