Naxos,  the largest independent label in the world of classical music, is releasing Serafin String Quartet's newest recording in digital format.



 

Led by Kate Ransom, President and CEO of Music School of Delaware, the other members are Esme Allen-Creighton, Lawrence Stomberg and Lisa Vaupel.

The disc, featuring early chamber works by Jennifer Higdon, is now available on Amazon and Itunes.



Serafin String Quartet initiated its discography and recording output with a debut release on the Centaur label in fall 2010. Their debut disc received high praise in The Strad Magazine (2010) and American Record Guide (2011). Significant recording projects remain an important part of the Quartet's artistic activity. The Serafins aspire to present recorded material that reflects the quality of their own artistic output and their philosophical commitment to the works of living composers, as well as time-tested masterworks, through both performance and recording projects.



About Jennifer Higdon

Grammy award-winning composer, Jennifer Higdon (b. 1962 and presently based in Philadelphia) recently received the Pulitzer Prize for her Violin Concerto and is one of the most-performed living American composers working today. Along with being a Grammy winner, she has also been the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Pew Fellowship and two awards from the American Academy of Arts & Letters. Commissions have come from the Philadelphia Orchestra to The President's Own Marine Band to the Tokyo String Quartet.



About Serafin String Quartet 

Hailed by The Strad Magazine for "playing with style and sophistication" and the American Record Guide for "combining true rhythmic precision, beautiful intonation, and beautiful articulation with an excellent sense of balance and deeply satisfying musical phrasing," Serafin String Quartet has been applauded by audiences around the nation, including sellout crowds at repeat performances in New York City’s Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall. The Quartet’s debut recording was released by Centaur Records in September 2010, to critical acclaim.  Serafin String Quartet serves as Quartet in Residence at the University of Delaware and takes its name from master violin maker, Sanctus Serafin, who in 1728 crafted the violin currently played by Kate Ransom.
