Matheson's String Quartet is an impressive piece of work. Thirty-two minutes long, it is brimming with ideas; the richness of their number is palpable... The String Quartet is, perhaps first and foremost, beautifully orchestrated, the combination of instruments used to create one wondrous color after another. Motor rhythms and repeated patterns juice forward progress; these ideas move through tonal progressions, reaching plateaus of more static material (at least in the first two movements) - meditative, starry-skied, rapt. The quick finale is a syncopated romp. - Timothy Mangan, Orange County Register Color Field is a flexible and soothing ensemble that plays musically interesting repertoire that also challenges the musicians. The ensemble shocks the listener immediately with the startling opening notes, evoking an exhilaration that is rarely felt when listening to string quartets. "Fans of Yarlung's fine albums are going to really love this one." - Floor van der Holst, Native DSD.
