String Quartets 3 & 4 (vol.II) - Bartok (freshness & savour of genius in full flower - 33CX 1267)

£6.99

Product description

(featuring The Vegh String Quartet : Sandor Vegh - violin 1 ; Sandor Zoldy - violin 2 ; Georges Janzer - viola ; and, Paul Szabo - cello)

Bela Bartok (1881-1945) composed his Third & Fourth String Quartets in 1927/28 ; they have the freshness and savour of genius in new and full flower. Both as a craftsman and as a personality, he had come to maturity. His long-time professional associate, Swiss conductor Paul Sacher, described the Hungarian composer as he was in the late 1920s : a man slight and delicate of frame, with the appearance of a finely-nerved scholar, yet possessed of fanatical will-power and, when it was needed, of pitiless severity.

Continuing, :-
"His being breathed light and brightness ; his eyes burned with a noble fire. In the flash of his searching glance neither falsehood nor obscurity could endure. If, in performance, an especially hazardous and refractory passage came off well, he laughed in boyish glee ; and when he was pleased with the successful solution of a problem, he actually beamed. That meant more than forced compliments, which I never heard from his mouth."

Side One : String Quartet No.3, by Bartok :-
1) I Moderato 2) II Allegro.

Side Two : String Quartet No.4, by Bartok :-
1) I Allegro 2) II Prestissimo con sordino 3) III Non troppo lento 4) IV Allegro pizzicato 5) Allegro molto.

Records graded visually to RRPG grades (record/sleeve) VG+/VG+.
