Notes and Editorial Reviews

When one considers the string quartet, one tends to think of the great Germanic composers, with their French counterparts often forgotten. This collection, however, brings together a series of French string quartets that are extraordinary in their own right. They are performed by the acclaimed Juilliard String Quartet, established in 1946 by Robert Mann and William Schuman whose stated credo was to “play new works as if they were established masterpieces, and established masterpieces as if they were new.” When one considers the string quartet, one tends to think of the great Germanic composers, with their French counterparts often forgotten.
