22. Quartets by Haydn and Bartók

22. Quartets by Haydn and Bartók

Piano Nobile

Bartók explored a palette of unusual sound effects with his Third String Quartet, employing different instrumental techniques. Haydn, often referred to as “the father of the string quartet,” daringly ended his Quartet, op. 20, no. 2 with a compositional tour de force, a complex four-voice fugue. Enjoy this enriching musical experience with the Borromeo Quartet.

Bartók, String Quartet no. 3, Sz. 85

Haydn, String Quartet in C major, Hob.III:32

“The Borromeo Quartet plays with great finesse. Intonation in its ensemble was as close to perfect as you can get. The dynamic range went from a whisper to full-out playing. But the best aspect of the performance was the sensitivity to the differences in style among the composers.” – The Star Telegram
