The string quartet is the highest achievement of classical music. How to describe what a great string quartet is/does? Four voices that sing, simultaneously dependently and independently. Or, as someone else once said, "a conversation among four very intelligent and witty persons." After almost 200 years, Beethoven's 16 quartets still stand as the acme of the form, notwithstanding brilliant contributions from just about every important composer since. There are many wonderful performances of the Beethoven quartets available on CD, but none are more distinguished than these performances by the Talich Quartet. More than any other ensemble in my experience, the Talich's performances proclaim that intimacy is the true experience of quartet playing (and listening). Every phrase is projected with exquisite attention to the constantly shifting balance of light and shadow that is the hallmark of the greatest quartet playing. Tempos are vigorous without being rushed, rubato is applied in the subtlest way imaginable, and dynamics seem to explore impossible distinctions between pp and ppp. In short, every performance in this set invites you to carefully listen to Beethoven's musical argument as you've never listened before.

The New York Times has described the French ensemble as “a string quartet that can easily morph into a jazz band” and its recordings of Haydn, Bartók, Brahms and Schubert have been praised all over the world. Portal and the Ébène first played together in Paris in 2013, where Piazzolla’s compositions were also on the programme, prompting Le Monde to speak of “a significant lesson, a superb encounter, a real conversation.”

A` l'occasion des 30 ans de la cre´ation de notre quatuor, nous avons souhaite´ au travers de cet enregistrement, e´voquer notre gure patronymique «Manfred». Manfred, gure essentielle et repre´sentative du romantisme europe´en, est totalement lie´ a` son cre´ateur, George Gordon Baron dit Lord Byron (1788-1824). Annonc¸ant le ce´le`bre Voyageur contemplant une mer de nuages peint l'anne´e suivante par Caspar David Friedrich, Manfred est un drame en vers publie´ en 1817.

Sometimes out of time, sometimes disorientating and hectic, Marc Mellits's music skillfully mixes sleek and diaphanous textures with passages that are totally unrestrained. In the wake of American minimalist composers such as Steve Reich and Philip Glass, the energy of Mellits's works more closely resembles rock music. Quatuor Debussy take us on an adventurous sonic journey with the world premiere recordings of the composer's String Quartets No.3, 4 and 5.

KOMITAS QUARTET Established in 1924 at the Moscow State Tchaykovsky Conservatory by four talented Armenian students, Komitas State Quartet celebrates its 80th Anniversary in 2004. The oldest quartet of Viennese school among existing in the world has recently applied to Guinness World Records for official recognition of that fact and the request has been approved as unique. All musicians of the quartet play Guarnerius instruments, Andrea and Pietro, of 17 and 18 centuries and their skill is so brilliant that it has always created overwhelming response in all countries of the world they toured, over 70 in total. True ambassadors of Armenian culture, Komitas State Quartet produce a unique sound distinct, vivid and original.

Eternal Stories might just turn out to be one of the best albums that Portal has ever recorded. He could well have been thinking of his beloved Charlie Parker, who in 1949 realised his dream of making a recording with a string section. Eternal Stories is not some kind of attempt at a remake, but comprises completely new pieces and two new arrangements of classic Portal numbers, a late work by Piazzolla and astonishing contributions from members of Quatuor Ébène itself.

Programme intelligent que celui proposé par le Quatuor Varèse, tissant à rebours comme une lignée généalogique du quatuor à cordes au XXe siècle. […] Le Quatuor Arcadiana de Thomas Adès bénéficie une nouvelle fois d’une interprétation de belle facture […] Le jeu convaincant, précis, souple mais aussi tendu quand il le faut des Varèse convient bien à cette œuvre kaléidoscopique à la modernité tranquille. […] Le Quatuor de Ravel […], est abordé sans l’abattage ni la plénitude sonore des meilleures formations, mais avec la faculté de développer de vastes panoramas sonores d’influence impressionniste, notamment dans le premier mouvement. […] Les Varèse proposent néanmoins une vision personnelle qui se montre de plus en plus convaincante au fil des écoutes.
