Description: The 2001 second quartet's virtues can be said to apply to all three of these works. Written in an accessible tonal style, the quartet includes a jazz-influenced scherzo, a lyrical and highly expressive slow movement and two outer movements that blend a dash of French Impressionist moodiness with elements of late Romanticism and mid 20th-century American swagger. The third, of about the same length (20 min.) is a single-movement work inspired by the catastrophic invasion of Iraq the same year but the dark qualities Post draws one's attention to in his notes are not particularly gloomy; the same virtues of approachability and clarity are present here as also in the two briefer works. Hawthorne String Quartet.
