String Quartets 1,2,5 & 6 - Bartok 2 LPs [SAGA Collector's Series] - SAGA 5203/05

£9.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

(featuring The Fine Arts Quartet on both albums : violinist I Leonard Sorkin ; violinist II Abram Loft ; violist Irving Ilmer ; and, cellist George Sopkin)

Bela Bartok's (1881-1945) six string quartets reveal the man's artistic growth, to a greater extent than any of his other works. In the quartets he makes use of techniques which he had previously-acquired, as well as some that are completely new.

The composer was an eclectic, and always interested in new developments. Whilst absorbing them all, he synthesised them into something that was definitely recognisable as 'Bartokian'. Bartok himself thought of certain works being in definite keys, but he uses totalities so freely that they cannot be said, with any certainty, to be in this or that key! His writings for the medium extend over a period of forty-five years, and offer an exciting study of the Hungarian's development as a creative artist ...
