|The well known british singer Nellie McKay
perform whith the Quartet, very nice indeed.
|Its name derived from creation mythology found in Native American Folklore,
the Turtle Island Quartet, since its inception in 1985, has been a singular
force in the creation of bold, new trends in chamber music for strings.
Winner of the 2006 and most recently, the 2008
Grammy Award for Best Classical Crossover Album,
Turtle Island fuses the classical quartet esthetic with contemporary
American musical styles, and by devising a performance practice that
honors both, the state of the art has inevitably been redefined.
