A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE STRING QUARTET: PART TWO

In this second and final episode in our string quartet adventure – which may be enjoyed even without having heard Part One – takes listeners on a one-hour journey through the transformation of music composed for the string quartet, from the end of the 19th century and Grieg, all the way to the latest, most curious inventions by Kaja Saariaho and John Adams.
