The Borromeo String Quartet's latest album, called "As It Was, Is, and Will Be" was artist-edited by Nicholas Kitchen and Gunther Schuller for a joint GM Recordings/Living Archive release on January 14.  The album is unique among classical music releases in that it features both LIVE-IN-CONCERT and STUDIO versions of Gunther Schuller's masterpiece, String Quartet No. 4.

The disc also offers Béla Bartók's String Quartet No. 4, and "Lamentations and Satire" and recent work by composer Mohammed Fairouz, a swiftly rising star in the classical firmament.

The CD release concert, being presented by the TENRI Cultural Institute of New York on January 21 at 8pm, will feature the World Premiere of Mohammed Fairouz's CHORALE FANTASY.
