For its very first recording on Chandos, the Arcadia String Quartet presents what has been at the very heart of its musical career and influences: the complete string quartets by Bartók. With the music of the Hungarian composer, the members of this Romanian ensemble, neighbours of his birthplace, have won such major careershaping competitions as Osaka, the Wigmore Hall, and Hamburg. Bartók’s attachment to the string quartet – as to no other genre – was to the keystone of the Viennese tradition, but with the aim of moving the medium out of its native city a little, into the countryside of alternative tonalities and rhythms. The six mature works he wrote are being revealed here with all the singular patterns, mixed modalities, bitterness, lamentations, and, at times, bright folk influences which they contain. © Chandos

Founded in 1979, Chandos Records is named after the first Duke of Chandos. The Duke was an aristocratic patron who supported Handel, amongst others. Following its namesake’s example, Chandos has worked tirelessly for over thirty years to protect and promote the neglected masterpieces of English music. The label has released the complete oeuvres and symphonies of Arnold Bax and Vaughan Williams, alongside rehabilitating the works of Gerald Finzi, Charles Stanford, Herbert Howells and William Alwyn. Chandos has specialized in the rediscovery of old repertoires; its label ‘Chaconne’ has begun editing unknown compositions by Leclair, Telemann, and, appropriately, Handel. ...
