Our 2014 Program
Music for Airport Furniture
We are thrilled to announce the imminent release of Music for Airport Furniture through the US label Cold Blue Music.
At the beginning of 2013, Zephyr Quartet hit the studio to record Stephen Whittington's Music for Airport Furtniture. We premiered this work in 2011 and it was a pleasure to revisit it and settle into its "sheer elegance and eloquence" (composer Peter Garland). Now, after some expert mixing and mastering we are set for a release date of September 9. Pre-release has seen the CD already played on several radio stations in the US and received international reviews, with critics praising the "luxurious and comforting" (Richard Friedman, KALW San Francisco) nature of the music and describing the Quartet's performance as "outstanding, investing just the right amount of emotional content into each extended phrase" (Paul H. Muller, Sequenza21).
The CD will also be available through iTunes.
