Is there anything more fascinating than hearing the music of a composer who was deaf? Something about that idea - of creating something whose purpose is to be heard, but not by you - is fascinating, is beautiful and, in a way, is selfless. 

The Spektral Quartet's new album is anything but serious.

Commonly analogized as "a conversation among friends," chamber music invites the listener in to a conversation between the musicians.

John Field. The name may not mean much to you, but if you’re like me and absolutely love Chopin’s nocturnes, you’re in luck: there’s another composer who pulls off something similar to that sound. And not to burst your bubble, but I’m here today to tell you Chopin was not first; as the hipsters would say, John Field wrote nocturnes before it was cool.
