Quotations about String Quartets.
Literature has many quotatios about string quartets and their instruments. Here are some quotations:-
The purity of quartet style demands the absolute subjection of virtuosity to the music, and while the best technical equipment is not too good for it, the skill of the player will be tested rather by his treatment of a passage in relation to the rest of the parts than by any outstanding brilliance of execution. It is well known that the great violinist is not necessarily a successful quartet player; his individualistic vitality, noble though it be, may disrupt the spirit of ensemble music.
