Marvelous

austina

The Best Bartok quartet performance I have heard to date, the Vermeer bring out the lyricism, edginess and sweetness of Bartok in one rich organic whole... simply compelling and uplifting

Incredible Interpretation

vamanadeva

If one is inclined to minor dissonanace in the modern vernacular or brilliant phrasing and interpretation, this set is a classic. Vermeer Quartet are totally impressive.

Bartok was a rock star!

I purchased this CD set years ago and have since worn out the discs completely; I recently tried to rip the CDs, only to find they were too scratched. I was so happy to find them on Emusic! These quartets are haunting at times, often humorous, and also violently raucous. It's an amazing experience to see them performed live; the performers (if they're any good) constantly alternate between dancing lovingly with their instruments or seemingly tearing them apart. The quality of the rip is excellent, the sound very warm and clean, the "Bartok pizzicatos" crisp and alive. Also check out Bartok's Concerto for Orchestra...my single favorite piece of "classical" music.
