Programme Note
Michael Gordon The Low Quartet (1985)
Composer note:

The Low Quartet is an advocation for the rich, low, reedy register of the bass instruments –– the register that usually carries the flow line that holds up the busier stuff on top. I thought it was time to give them some action –– a clumsy, fast-moving, hard-driving dance, like fat cows grooving. I wrote The Low Quartet for the low instruments of the world.

—Michael Gordon

The Low Quartet is dedicated to Evan Ziporyn.
