Lyrics Quartet Plays Elijah’s Chariot

Lyris Quartet plays Shatin’s Elijah’s Chariot on a concert presented by People Inside Electronics at Monk Space in LA. You can hear an excerpt here. Originally commissioned by the Kronos Quartet, and toured by them from Asia To Europe to America, including BAM’s Next Wave Festival, it was recently recorded by the Cassatt Quartet for Shatin’s Time to Burn CD, Innova #845. Scored for amplified string quartet and electronics made from processed shofar recordings, you can find out all about it here. It has received lots of warm response, including this from Jazz Weekly: “The closing “Elijah’s Chariot” with The Cassatt String Quartet and electronics ends the album as a true Baal buster with lots of moments that are both cerebral and visceral.” –George W. Harris
