Sibyl Tones (String Quartet No. 1). Arditti Quartet. Marko Letonja, conductor. Listener-supported WNYC is the home for independent journalism and courageous conversation on air and online.

Sibyl Tones is almost unmistakably the work of a string player, insofar as the precision with which each instrument is abused bespeaks a high level of intimacy with the feel of bow and fingers against the string. It is as if each note were not sounded, but meticulously sounded around: the bow too close to the bridge or too far away, drawn too faintly or crushed into the string; the fingers pressed too lightly against the string or trilled furiously upon it or both at once.

Both "Zap" and "Emerald Eyes" are re-recordings from Johnson's then-unreleased 1978 debut album Seven Worlds, which eventually saw an official release in 1998. The instrumental "Zap", released as a B-side to the single "Off My Mind", was nominated for Best Rock Instrumental Performance at the 1987 Grammy Awards.

Matthew Barnson (born 1979) is an American composer. Barnson is a native of Utah and obtained his undergraduate degree from the Eastman School of Music. He pursued graduate studies at the University of Pennsylvania and Yale University. Barnson is the youngest recipient of a Barlow Commission from the BYU College of Fine Arts and Communications. He was awarded a 2009 Charles Ives Prize. He is currently an assistant professor of composition at Stony Brook University.

Utah-born composer Matthew Barnson has studied at Eastman, the University of Pennsylvania and Yale, and now resides in New York City. His work is expressive and dramatic, and touches on both the European and American traditions. This CD presents three powerful and original pieces for string quartet, brilliantly preformed by both the Arditti Quartet from London and the JACK quartet from New York City. Three exciting string quartets by a thrilling new American compositional voice. Conductor: Matthew Barnson. Composer: Matthew Barnson.
