Michelangelo Quartet by Marco Borggreve
The Herald called the Michelangelo Quartet “one of the great string quartets of the era” and lauded the members' playing that’s “out of this world.” They perform a Haydn quartet that delights with its opening movement imitation of birdsong and concludes with a display of quicksilver virtuosity. After a dirge-like opening, Bartók’s quartet quickens in pace until it too culminates in a breathless finale. Smetana’s masterpiece is far more introverted, a poignant work that reflects on his life’s work, hopes, and tragedy.
