- "'Round Midnight' is dedicated to Thelonious Monk, who is widely recognised for the percussive poetry of his very personal piano style and the unshakable authority of his compositions.
The composers that Makrokosmos Quartet commissioned to write the music on this record all hold Monk's music dear: pianist-composer-bandleader, but none of them have been so swayed by affection as to deny their own identity... Makrokosmos's players don't play like Monk, but like him, they want to be in that place of boundaries and transitions because in that place, endings are also beginnings, and in beginnings there is new life."
