Customer Reviews

Great Stuff here

Wow. two great composers, wonderful recordings. (I prefer debussy, though). Andantino doucement expressif (Op.10 III.) never gets old. magnificent. Just, wow.

Debussy & Ravel: String Quartets

Deffinitely 2 of the finest string quartets around. I, personally, prefer Ravel's piece, but I think there is a better interpretation of it played by the Hagen Quartet (you can find it on Youtube). This album is wonderful and worth every single penny.

Greatest modern string quartets...

In my opinion, Debussy and Ravel composed the finest modern string quartets with Op. 10 and the F-major quartet, respectively. They are not easy to perform, but this recording is awesome. It's a great buy.

The Quartetto Italiano is regarded as one of the finest string quartets of the twentieth century. The group generally focused on quartet-only repertory, avoiding performance with guest artists of quintets and other larger compositions. The ensemble's repertory was broad and included the entire quartet outputs of Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, Schumann, and Webern, and selected works of Galuppi, Vivaldi, Prokofiev, Stravinsky, Bartók, Shostakovich, Villa-Lobos, Schoenberg, and many others.
