After twenty years of recording and performing around the world, the Cypress String Quartet has retired from performing together. For their final album, they were joined by violist Barry Shiffman and cellist Zuill Bailey for live recordings of both of the string sextets by Brahms. Jennifer Kloetzel, founding cellist of the Cypress String Quartet, talked with KMFA’s Chris Johnson about her twenty years with the quartet and their final recording which is available now from Avie Classics.
