The delightful and bountiful musical permutations of the string quartet are offered here by the esteemed Orion Quartet in the company of two stellar young artists. From the standard-setting quartet by Haydn, founder of the genre, to one of Mozart’s sublime quintets (composed for himself to sit in as violist) to Dvořák’s orchestral-scale sextet, the diverse art of the string ensemble is revealed in all its irresistible glory.
