( Orange Mountain Music)

Brooklyn Rider’s performances of Philip Glass’ five string quartets have more grit than polish, but this collection's one advantage over the classic Kronos Quartet recordings is the inclusion of a suite from “Bent,” a disquieting Holocaust film (with Mick Jagger in drag) made noble through the composer's music.
