A Little Bartok to Sooth Your Nerves

by Steve, December 17th, 2007

Since I’m on a YouTube faves kick, here’s a movement from one of my favorite string quartets. The Hugo Wolf Quartet plays Bartok’s fourth string quartet, first part, Allegro, with a little cinematic treatment. (Sorry, the clip kind of cuts off at the end.)

    I like Bartok but “soothing”? Not so much. Especially that mvt.

    It was a joke. Tensions were running high on Monday, and I’m a bit of a tease. (I especially like the look of the second violinist.)

    Ah, nothing like the holidays to make us all relaxed.

    (and here I was chastising someone for not getting a joke earlier…)
