What happened to the string quartet in the 20th century? Stravinsky’s and Webern’s dramatically short and condensed pieces open the door. There is no way back after that - but where to go? This selection of pieces and movements show the different roads composers took and where it led them with a commented introduction to the string quartet in the 20th century, played by the renowned Bozzini Quartet from Canada.
