Let's Listen: String Quartet Opus 127
The Danish String Quartet puts forth this energetic, live performance of a Beethoven string quartet. We are all so spoiled with perfect-sounding music on CDs and mp3s, all carefully edited in a studio; it is easy to forget how devilishly difficult it is for a live group to please a modern audience. Bravo!
A string quartet is a 3-4 movement piece written for the standard string quartet grouping, namely 2 violins, a viola, and a cello.
Available for download on iTunes, please enjoy the Budapest String Quartet performing Op.127.
