PACD 96007 Colorado String Quartet: Barhms, String Quartets, op. 51 American Record Guide Review

What I like most about this recording, besides the immaculate intonation (rare in performances of these pieces) and extremely precise rhythm (the music is loaded with duplets against triplets), is the fact that the recording favors the inner voices. The quartet plays the music from tile inside out, building on a very strong center of second violin and viola. Parnassus has recorded them so that as listeners we get a view from the inside where we can observe the crystalline formations of the music like a stargazer looking at the sky on a very clear night These four people play with such a like mind that it is easy to imagine that they could he playing irnstruments made by the same maker, of wood from the same tree. The Colorado Quartet, whose members come mostly from California, had its beginnings at the University of Colorado at Boulder and is now based in New York. They have had an impressive international reputation for many years and have won many awards, including the Naumburg Chamber Music Award and First Prize at the Banff International String Quartet Competition, both in 1983. From this recording it is clear why. For a real treat, listen with the score!
