5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Britten, 19 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Britten: String Quartets - Three Divertimenti (Audio CD)
I hate the word "difficult" when applied to music and this is often the word applied to Britten in general and the quartets in particular.
Having said that anyone buying this disc more or less has fallen in love with Britten anyway and the quartets are probably best left until one is reasonably familiar with his style.
Beautifully played and spiky with an extra helping of acid
Get this and then get the Maggini set - I can't decide, though I do have a soft spot for the Maggini having listened to it whilst recovering in hospital, this set is somehow more focused.
Get both, put them on and let them soak in!

Do you have the Amadeus recording? I have found only the quartets 2 and 3; is there no record of the 1st quartet performed by them?
