"The program began with a wonderfully dramatic reading of Schubert’s Quartettsatz in C minor...Verdi is so thoroughly associated with opera that some music lovers don’t even know that he wrote a string quartet. Yet his one go at it is one of the finest of the genre, at least the equal of some of the Beethoven Quartets. The Fine Arts rendition was entirely persuasive and brought the concert to a rousing close."
