Quotations about String Quartets.
Literature has many quotatios about string quartets and their instruments. Here are some quotations:-
before it can attempt to interpret musical style, a quartet must master the essential style of its own form. It faces a set of problems distinct from either solo or orchestral problems. Quartet playing means four individuals who must make a unified whole yet remain individuals. The soloist is a whole in himself, and in the orchestra individuality is lost in numbers that are held together by the personality of the conductor.
