Led by Boston violinist Mimi Rabson, with violinist Eric Bindman and violist Melissa Howe, RESQ explores and adds to a world of music not traditionally intended for string quartet. The quartet plays fiddle music from around the world, jazz & Afro-Cuban standards and some original compositions.
WHAT THE CRITICS SAY:
"The Really Eclectic String Quartet thoroughly lives up to its name, which makes it pretty hard to define its music. The local group's second CD displays wonderful imagination, humor, and technical virtuosity . . . the players have a passionate, driving attack that makes their music leap out of the speakers, and the complexity of their arrangements should keep the interest of the most sophisticated listener." ----- Elijah Wald, Boston Globe
