Reich:  Different Trains
Crumb:  Black Angels

The New Orford Quartet brings two contemporary American string quartet classics vibrantly to life. Reich’s Grammy-winning composition Different Trains (1988) presents a highly imaginative collage that combines taped speech and sound effects with music both live and pre-recorded. His goal was to contrast the warm feelings engendered within him by the trans-American railway trips he had made as a child during the early years of the Second World War, with the horrific railway journeys that Jews were being forced to make in Europe at that same time. George Crumb’s Black Angels (1970), scored for electric string quartet (and a handful of additional instruments) presents all manner of extended techniques and theatrical flourishes throughout its exploration of nightmarish atmospheres. The opening movement appeared on the soundtrack of the classic 1973 horror film, The Exorcist.
