Mahler Song Cycles With String Quartet?

I don’t normally promote Kickstarter campaigns, but I admire the Alexander String Quartet so much that I just couldn’t resist this one. The quartet’s first violinist, Zakarias Grafilo, has transcribed Songs of a Wayfarer, Kindertotenlieder and Ruckert-Lieder for voice and string quartet, and they would like to record them with the excellent mezzo-soprano Kindra Scharich.

You can check out Scharich on YouTube; she has a superb voice. And of course the Alexander Quartet needs no introduction. Here’s the link to their Kickstarter page.
