HINDEMITH, P.: String Quartets (Complete) (Amar Quartet)

From the bracing dynamism of the earlier quartets to the technical sophistication of the later works, Paul Hindemith’s seven String Quartets include some of his supreme chamber music masterpieces and form one of the 20th century’s greatest quartet cycles. The award-winning Amar Quartet is named after Hindemith’s own eminent ensemble of the 1920s, and their acclaimed performances explore and express every aspect of the composer’s passion and intellectual rigour in this genre. ClassicsToday.com considers these recordings ‘outstanding… an endless source of pleasure… there is little doubt that this will become the reference edition in this music.’
