Serafin String Quartet's world premiere recording of early chamber works by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Jennifer Higdon was released by Naxos in July 2013.

"The Serafin apply a silken finesse and gritty vibrancy to their duties and members of the ensemble take part in several other works with first-rate colleagues - pianist Charles Abramovic and bassoonist Eric Stomberg - to telling effect."
