Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Béla Bartók, born in 1881, is considered by many to be the greatest Hungarian composer as well as one of the most significant musical voices of the 20th century. Bartok's six string quartets, to which this 2CD compilation is dedicated, represent a milestone in the history of the genre and provide a unique insight into the way the composer's musical language developed over four decades. The Guarneri is on fine form here and delivers a first-rate performance brimming with character. A gem of a recording. 'Magnificently played' - Gramophone

Fanfare Magazine
A beauty and elegance that unmistakably connects these works to the long legacy of the Classical era string quartet repertoire. I wouldn't want to be without some of the above-noted versions of Bartók's quartets, not to mention those by the Emerson Quartet and the highly acclaimed Belcea Quartet, but at Newton's budget price, this is practically a steal. Definitely recommended.
