 Kodaly and Mr. Schubert September 19, 2016 By Kim LaCoste (Saint Louis, MO) See All My Reviews "The Kodaly Quartet's recording of Schubert's 10th and 13th string quartets are wonderful. Their approach made the music come to life. What the musicians bring to the music is innate; it can’t be learned… People sometimes say a “classical piece is a classical piece”, meaning, it’s just a work someone else has already performed. But this doesn’t apply to them. They have a beautiful sense of music interpretation, as if they actually knew Franz Schubert. That’s what makes the CD a “must have”. When you buy it, don’t be surprised if you find yourself swaying to the Menuetto: Allegretto of String Quartet No. 13." Report Abuse
