Bartók explored a palette of unusual sound effects with his Third Quartet, employing different instrumental techniques. Haydn, often referred to as “the father of the string quartet,” daringly ended his Quartet, op. 20, no. 2 with a compositional tour de force, a complex four-voice fugue. Enjoy this enriching musical experience with the Borromeo Quartet.
