I. Allegro

My personal favorite of Bartók's six string quartets. Like many of his mature works, the quartet is loosely in an arch form, three fast movements with two slow movements in between. It's a masterpiece of formal symmetry and balance in more ways than one.

Luminous 1963 recording by the Juilliard String Quartet. Art by Wassily Kandinsky.
