One of the most brilliant works in the quartet literature, an exciting new composition based on it, and a virtuoso award-winning ensemble: the Aris Quartet's GENUIN CD Attacca bursts with energy from the very first moment.
Highly acclaimed with awards such as "Echo Rising Stars" 2019/2020, the Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award, and "BBC New Generations Artists" 2018-2020, the Aris Quartet juxtaposes Beethoven's "Russian" Quartet Op. 59, No. 1, with Gerald Resch's String Quartet No. 3.
Gerald Resch's intention was to build a kind of "adjacent property" to Beethoven. The Aris Quartet vividly brings out both the connections and differences with its nuanced playing.
