    The music is so well-known that anything I have to add on the subject is superfluous. Every mood from sublime to extremely playful is in there and, in my opinion, it is one of the best 20th century quartets. It is fiendishly difficult to play (for all four players...

    ) with strange effects, complex rhythms and difficult tempos. But it is worth the work. The quality of the sheet music is very high. The score is large enough to be readable and the parts are well printed.
