In their own words, “Within each of these works is a feeling of expanse, an opening up of the music, as if the composer were standing on the edge of a cliff looking out over a broad new terrain. Alberga and Beethoven tackle life’s greatest existential questions – they zoom out of the personal, the local, and the quotidian, and instead wrestle with the laws of nature, astrophysics, and with the meaning of life. Though there is much existential angst in these works, there is also profound beauty and wisdom.” – The Aizuri Quartet
