Cellist Jennifer Kloetzel joins me to speak about the final recording produced by the Cypress String Quartet. For this project, the ensemble chose the two string sextets by Johannes Brahms. They were joined by longtime collaborators violist Barry Shiffman and cellist Zuill Bailey, performing live in front of a studio audience at Skywalker Sound Studio. Jennifer discusses the quartet’s 20 years together and why they chose the Brahms sextets as opposed to the quartets.
The Cypress String Quartet members are Cecily Ward and Tom Stone (violins), Ethan Filner (viola) and Jennifer Kloetzel (cello). Enjoy my chat with Jennifer!
Yours in good music,
