The Silesian String Quartet, from Poland, may well be the "Kronos Quartet of Eastern Europe" - which is meant as high praise. Each piece on this disc is an example of cutting edge contemporary writing by a young Danish composer and each piece is "linked", almost seamlessly, by what is described as an "electronic mix" - of the pieces before and after the link - by the composer Morten Riis. The key to appreciating this disc is to be prepared for some amazing extended techniques and writing that transforms the string quartet into something almost "beyond" itself.
