You don't have to be an American to enjoy 50 years of this romp, and you might as well enjoy it while you can because who knows if this romp might last for another 50 years. Featuring the renowned Emerson Quartet in five American chamber works, repertoire which they are not normally associated with but which they play superlatively well, is this juxtaposition of the dense and rhythmically complex string pieces by Cowell, Schuller, and Imbrie with the lush and lyrical writings of Harris and Shepherd.
