Mikrokosmos Sz 107 Quartetski


Technical virtuosity meets a virtuosity in cleverness is the best way to describe this music. Homage, respect, innovation: paint that on a banner and hang it at the next Quartetski show. The Squid’s Ear, USA

The CD confirms that the quintet can positively transform a revered composer’s supposedly unalterable work. The WholeNote, Canada

Quartetski goes back to basics with this adaptation of progressive exercises and études by the great Béla Bartók. Composed between 1926 and 1939, Mikrokosmos was Bartók’s attempt to solve certain technical problems in the art of piano playing. By taking on this work, Quartetski proves once again that it is a good little pupil. Even without a piano.
