VISION STRING QUARTET »

Ligeti
Schubert
Beethoven
String Quartet No 1 Métamorphoses nocturnes
Quartettsatz in C minor D703
String Quartet in A minor Op 132

This young German quartet are taking the chamber music world by storm. Playing from memory (and standing, the cellist apart), their thrilling dynamism and total commitment is winning them plaudits around the world. The Bartók-like energy of Hungarian composer György Ligeti's early quartet is an ideal vehicle for the Vision Quartet's virtuosity and they close with Beethoven's great A minor quartet, whose famous "song of thanksgiving to God" at its centre is one of the most profoundly moving movements in all chamber music.

Thrilling and electrifying...[they received] a minutes-long standing ovation
