"New Renaissance," Los Angeles Guitar Quartet
LAGQ 0135; released March 2015

Contains: Music In Four Sharps (On Dowland’s ‘Frog Galliard’)

“The second half started with what for me was the high point of the evening, a composition by Ian Krouse after John Dowland’s (c 1600) Frog Galliard entitled Music in Four Sharps. Tennant played the original lute piece beautifully on the guitar in order to show us what was to be the subject; then the quartet played the Krouse piece which consisted of a confluence of sounds flowing together and pertaining to the Galliard, sometimes like birdsong, sometimes like Messaien and through echoed rasgueados evoking the slight melancholy of late Elizabethan music. This composition was a masterpiece, beautifully rendered. John Dowland himself would have thoroughly enjoyed it.”

~ Mike Jones, ROYAL GAZETTE, February 9, 2015
“Ian Krouse's "Music in Four Sharps" was a set of variations in search of a theme, which proved to be John Dowland's "Frog Galliard"…by nature somewhat conservative in [its] harmonic language but extremely modern in [its] rhetoric, and the subtle polytonality that arose from the intricate counterpoint wove[n] for the four players.”
~ Mark Satola, CLEVELAND.COM, March 23, 2015 “Second-longest and second only to the Cervantes suite in its attractiveness is Ian Krouse’s Music in Four Sharps (on Dowland’s “Frog Galliard”). Based on a popular piece by John Dowland, Shakespeare’s nearly exact contemporary (1563-1616), Krouse’s work builds up to the full galliard and then marches away from it, eventually ending with wisps of sound. Its exploration of a full range of guitar effects makes it particularly interesting to hear.” ~ INFODAD, April 9, 2015 “Ian Krouse had set himself the task of writing a piece based on Dowland’s Frog Galliard that never ventured out of the twelve pitches available in the key of E Major. That’s more difficult than it sounds, for most pieces that last fourteen minutes or more, as Music in Four Sharps does, depend on venturing away from the home key and finding a convincing way to return at the end. Krouse developed a clever passacaglia-like format of variations over a recurring pattern borrowed from Dowland. When that idea ran out of steam, he turned to Philip Glass-like repetition, which kept things fresh — and safely in E Major — to the end. LAGQ helped hold everyone’s attention with their rapt, concentrated playing.” ~CLEVELAND CLASSICAL.COM, March 24, 2015
