San Diego

"The Fine Arts Quartet has a big and full sound, reminiscent of the Guarnieri during their heyday, but which they could turn off to fit the occasion. Playing the Lento, their tone was eerily dry. They used this big group tone throughout Mozart's Quartet, an old-school approach, but musically validated by their excellent performance. They brought similar emotion, precision, and beauty of tone to Beethoven's Quartet...The Fine Arts Quartet is an ensemble belonging to the first tier of string quartets."
