The PÁRKÁNYI (formerly ORLANDO) QUARTET, which worked with Sándor Végh in Budapest, waited thirty years before giving us its vision of this
summit of 20th-century quartet literature, the central diptych of the six String Quartets by the composer of The Miraculous Mandarin. It is coupled, as
a matter of interest, with the last Quartet, also inspired by the land, of an overly-neglected Hungarian and childhood friend of Bartók: the ethnologist
and dramatist Leo Weiner.
