Press reviews

The lyrical slow movement harked back to the classical period in the organic grittiness of the whole was a distinctly Beethovenian streak. Come to think of it, the brilliantly idiomatic writing so skilfully negotiated by the Arditti Quartet owed much to the father of the contemporary quartet, Bela Bartok.
