Lyric Suite for Sextet is an album by vibraphonist Gary Burton and pianist Chick Corea with a string quartet recorded in 1982 and released on the ECM label.[1] The album is the third studio recording by the duo following Crystal Silence (1972) and Duet (1978).

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Dave Connolly awarded the album 2½ stars stating "If you enjoy jazz/classical hybrids, which are by their nature intellectual pursuits, than this music should pique your interest. However, better to think of this as a duet with some string support than a sextet of equal partners".[2]
