An accomplished group in the world of chamber music, the Concord String Quartet, active from 1971-1987, gained almost immediate attention from the press as well as a dedicated following, after winning the prestigious Walter W. Naumburg Chamber Music Award in 1972. Although the quartet was a classical string quartet, these rare 1973 recordings show the groups affinity for the "New York School" of avant-garde composers, like Earle Brown, John Cage and Morton Feldman, as well. Side B is entirely comprised of John Cages 1950 "String Quartet in Four Parts", where each section of the piece corresponds to one of the four seasons as well as a particular force: spring/creation, summer/preservation, autumn/destruction, and winter/quiescence.
