"String Quartet No. 2" (1981): Flux Quartet. The finale of American Sublime: Feldman's "String Quartet No. 2" in a free concert in the elegant sanctuary of the Philadelphia Cathedral by the extraordinary Flux Quartet, which has made a specialty of this six-hour piece, performing it around the world. The audience is invited to come and go at will, though few musical experiences can match that of hearing this gripping work in its entirety. The FLUX Quartet has performed to rave reviews at many music centers around the world. It has appeared at Da Camera of Houston, Miller Theater, the Walker Art Center, the Library of Congress, and Carnegie Hall's When Morty Met John Festival. It has also recently made two rave debuts, in Ireland at the Samuel Beckett Centenary Festival, and in San Francisco with the Morrison Series, which invited the quartet back as special guests for its 50th anniversary gala concert.
