Notes & Reviews:

"...The first quartet, unashamedly inspired by the glories of Bartok's quartets - full of jagged rhythms and rich sombre, unsentimental melody - was written without hope of public performance because of the political climate in Hungary. The second...shows his compositional methods totally changed...The other three pieces...are premiere recordings. The Arditti plays eloquently and compellingly throughout..." ***** -Witherden, Classic CD
