In his 16 quartets for two violins, viola, and cello, Beethoven created a Mount Everest for string players and some of the most sublime, unforgettable music ever written. Continuing to astound listeners after 200 years, these glorious quartets give voice to the innermost landscape of the human heart and spirit. They stand, like Michelangelo's statues or the plays of Shakespeare, at the pinnacle of Western art.
Reading T.S. Eliot: Four Quartets and the Journey toward Understanding

Reading T.S. Eliot: Four Quartets and the Journey toward Understanding By G. Douglas Atkins
English | 2012 | ISBN: 023011248X | 196 pages | PDF | 1,5 MB

This book offers an exciting new approach to T. S. Eliot's Four Quartets through both a close reading and a comparison to Eliot's other works, notably the poems "The Waste Land", "The Hollow Men", and "Ash-Wednesday". G. Douglas Atkins reveals that in Four Quartets, incarnation is the universal, timeless pattern in Eliot's work.
Haydn - String Quartets, Op.33, Op.42, Op.50 No.1 (The Aeolian String Quartet) (2009)

Haydn - String Quartets, Op.33, Op.42, Op.50 No.1 (The Aeolian String Quartet)
Classical | DECCA 478 1267 | 2009 | TT: 72:50+73:00 | EAC (FLAC, cue, log) | Covers | 700 Mb

The Aeolian Quartet's epic cycle, originally released in the Seventies, was one of the gramophone's major contributions to Haydn's cause. Listening to the performances anew I find they have lost none of their freshness: they were based on the latest research, and the playing itself is always intelligent and thoughtful, with Emanuel Hurwitz's sweet-toned violin-playing a great asset throughout.

All three of Brahms’ string quartets appear in this 2-CD set, along with his piano quintet, recorded live at the Vienna Konzerthaus, where Elisabeth Leonskaja joined the members of the Alban Berg Quartett. The ensemble’s name honours the continuity and vigour of Vienna’s long musical tradition, which reached one of its Romantic highpoints with these chamber masterworks, composed in the 1860s and 1870s.

Brett Dean is not shy about revealing what his music is ‘about’. Whether inspired by certain individuals (as in Epitaphs), or by an ecological or human disaster (as in his String Quartet No. 1, on the now all too topical plight of refugees), Dean’s works are usually – perhaps invariably – driven by extra-musical narratives. Rather than tease out any innate structural puzzles or tensions, his music typically falls into short little dramatic narratives – no movement on this disc lasts as long as eight minutes, many of them rather less than five. The most obviously successful work here is Quartet No. 2, ‘And once I played Ophelia’, effectively a dramatic scena. Its soprano soloist is no mere extra voice (as in Schoenberg’s Second Quartet) but the leading protagonist. Allison Bell’s genuinely affecting performance is backed by the Doric Quartet’s expressionist scampering and sustained harmonies, the strings occasionally coming to the fore in the manner of a Schumann-style song postlude.
