Beethoven / Dvorak / Bartok - Beethoven/Bartok/Dvorak
Juilliard String Quartet
Since it was founded in 1946, the Juilliard String Quartet has been one of the most respected and benchmark string quartet formations worldwide. Your recording history is correspondingly long. The first album in the current line-up with Primaria Areta Zhulla, who has been operating since 2018 - alongside Ronald Copes (second violin), Roger Tapping (viola) and Astrid Schween (cello) - includes works by three composers: Beethoven, Bartok and Dvorak. Thus the "new" Juilliards face their glorious past. Because with cyclical recordings of both the Beethoven quartets and the six Bartok quartets, this formation made record history in the sixties. You can hear the second Rasumowski Quartet op.59 in E minor, which is one of Beethoven's most popular string quartets, the groundbreaking third quartet by Bela Bartok, which lasts just under 12 minutes, and the F major quartet op.96 by Antonin Dvorak, the so-called "American Quartet", which is one of the most played quartets of all.
