5.0 out of 5 stars Fine video performances of Xenakis' String Quartets, 30 Dec 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The JACK Quartet: Xenakis String Quartets Volume 10 [DVD] (DVD)
This DVD features videos of the recording of all four of Iannis Xenakis' string quartets by the Jack Quartet. This is apparently their debut recording.

The earliest quartet(ST/4...) is from 1962, the rest (Tetras, Tetora and Ergma) are from the 1980s and 1990s.

Previously all but the last quartet were available on a 2 disc set of chamber music by the Arditti Quartet and the last was on a CD by the Mondriaan Quartet, so this disc has the advantage of bringing all the works together in one place.

I can't fault the performances on this disc. The style of the recording doesn't interfere with the appreciation of the music.

The CD booklet is included for the essay, which is useful.
