The four quartets presented on this recording were selected from over one hundred which were entered in the First Annual Composers String Quartet Composition Contest, sponsored by the New England Conservatory in conjunction with the Composers String Quartet.

Scores were submitted to the contest from all areas of the United States, as well as from Canada, Mexico, and from American composers studying in England and Belgium.

After careful consideration, which included actual playing of the quartets submitted, these four award-winning quartets were selected by a panel of judges consisting of Mr. Elliott Carter, Mr. Hugo Weisgall, Mr. Thomas Dunn, Mr. Matthew Raimondi, and Mr. Donald Harris.

In addition to the present recording, two of the four string quartets were selected by the jury to receive publication by the E. C. Schirmer Company, Inc., (ASCAP) Boston, or their B.M.I. affiliate, lone Press, as well as two cash awards of $200.00 each. The New England Conservatory, as well as the Composers String Quartet, wishes particularly to express its gratitude to the E. C. Schirmer Company and to Composers Recordings, Inc., without whose participation this First Composers String Quartet Composition Contest would not have been possible.

The present recording was recorded in Jordan Hall of the New England Conservatory on May 16, 1970.
