Pieces by nine very different composers make up this fascinating collection of works for string quartet entitled Short Stories, performed by the Kronos Quartet. Elliott Sharp's Digital (1986) is a hard-edged rhythmic study using the instrument bodies as drums, with objects inserted in the strings to create rattling, shaker, and tambourine-like sounds.

SHORT STORIES is an outstanding collection of new music. Digital" by Elliot Sharp is all percussion, presumably produced with violin, viola and cello

The mystical muse of this British quartet delivers the images this title conjures; swirling mists of sound transport you to a reverie filled with glittering, twisting clouds and pools of liquid gold. Verve's second US title is edgey, reflective, suffused with light.
