The Twentieth-Century String Quartet
Stemming from the Royal Northern College of Music's QuartetFest 2000, this book published at the start of the twenty-first century is the first to give an overall assessment of the richness and diversity of the European and American twentieth-century quartet repertoire in a collection of eight essays by leading musicologists, composers and performers.
With chapters on the Austro-German Quartet; the French Quartet; the Central European Quartet; the Soviet and Russian Quartet; the British Quartet; the American Quartet; the Frontiers of Quartet Technique, and the Recorded Legacy.
