Notes & Reviews:

This reissue in Praga's Genuine Stereo Lab series brings together two beloved works of French impressionism with the last of Bartók's four masterful quartets. The program is played by a string quartet that, following their mentor Sandor Vegh's example, undertook a new career. After a highly acclaimed run as the Orlando Quartet (1976-84), the ensemble was reborn as the Párkányí Quartet, from the name of the Hungarian born violin virtuoso István Párkányí.
