Notes & Reviews:

  • A giant among 20th century composers, Ligeti fled his native Hungary following the 1956 revolt and died in 2006.
  • The string quartets are music of terrific intensity, variation and precision, challenging yet rewarding for both players and listeners
  • Founded 2006, the Bela Quartet are proving to be ardent champions of contemporary music, irrespective of genre.
  • (...)Panache, technical transcendent power and agility (...)
  • 'Energie et virtuosite' - Ouest France
