The second addition in this stunning series of string quartets performed by the Arditti Quartet in 1988, this series of works by the great American avant-garde composer are among the highest standards of production performance and interpretation of these complex and abstract string quartets. The late John Cage wrote for String Quartet throughout his entire career, and some of the works here date from as early as 1950 and as late as the year of the performance.

John Cage is of course infamous, scandalous, and incredibly influential in the avant-garde. When I first began exploring contemporary classical music in 2000/2001 Cage was among the first composers whose works I sought to hear. This live recording of the Arditti Quartet on February 27, 1988 at Wesleyan University, where Cage taught from 1960 on, is from a 75th birthday festival for the composer, and comes complete with the periodic cough. Cage died four years later in 1992.

String Quartet in Four Parts is a string quartet by John Cage, composed in 1950. It is one of the last works Cage wrote that is not entirely aleatoric. Like Sonatas and Interludes for prepared piano (1946–48) and the ballet The Seasons (1947), this work explores ideas from Indian philosophy. Cage began writing the quartet in 1949 in Paris.
The Complete String Quartets Vol. String Quartet in Four Parts (1949-50). The second volume of Cage's String Quartets features his first and last works in this repertoire. The well known and exquisitely beautiful, serenely Zen-like early quartet receives its first new recording in 16 years. It is a pivotal work in Cage's oeuvre, showing the composer's transition between the rhytmically complex percussion works before it and the chance works of the 1950s. -Richard Taruskin, The New Republic.
