Budapest String Quartet http://wrti.org en Budapest Quartet Gets To The Heart Of Beethoven http://wrti.org/post/all-about-budapest-string-quartet The Budapest String Quartet has always been my standard-bearer for chamber music. I grew up listening to their recordings, and especially admired not only their gorgeous sound, but also the uncanny interaction among all four players, even when there were changes in personnel. They had a way of playing as if they were speaking to each other, expressing deep and sometimes complicated feelings.<p>One of my most memorable concert experiences was the only time I ever heard the Budapest in person, when I was 20. The concert was sold out, but the management decided to sell seats on the stage. Tue, 23 Oct 2012 21:36:07 +0000 Lloyd Schwartz 4588 at http://wrti.org Budapest Quartet Gets To The Heart Of Beethoven
