Exile on main

This debut album by The Indianapolis Quartet consists of world premiere recordings of Robert Paterson's three string quartets: String Quartet No. 1, String Quartet No. 2, and String Quartet No. 3. These quartets span a period of over twenty years, with the first having been composed in 2000, and the second and third composed in 2019, and 2020, respectively. All three highly colorful works have various similarities: they all use copious extended techniques, but not for the sake of the techniques themselves, but as an integral part of the music itself. He also uses quotes in all three movements: the notorious "Love Boat" theme in Quartet No 1, quotes from music by Edvard Grieg in String Quartet No. 2, and snippets of various anthems in the last movement of String Quartet No. 3. All three quartets are in multiple movements, and they are all imbued with Paterson's characteristic whit, technical prowess, and vibrant personality.
