Notes and Editorial Reviews

The two legendary string ensembles featured in this Schubert programme were exact contemporaries: they were both formed in the 1912-13 season and, owing to the Great War, did not get into their stride until about 1920. But they were very different. The Busch Quartet, perhaps the finest such group of all time, came from the Austro-German tradition and mainly played the classics, although it had a range of fairly conservative modern music in its repertoire. The Quatuor Pro Arte of Brussels, by contrast, typified the Franco-Belgian tradition and, although it played French music and the classics beautifully, was best known for pioneering new works.
