PÁRKÁNYÍ QUARTET – DEFINITIVE SOUVENIR
This record is dedicated to the frequent association of two French scores, gems from ‘la Belle Époque’ (more or less the
Edwardian Era), played by a string quartet which, following their mentor Sandor Vegh's example, is undertaking a new career:
after a first and brilliant appearance (1976-84) under the name of Orlando, the quartet is back as Párkányí Quartet, from the
name of the Hungarian born ‘primarius’, István Párkányí. Only one member was changed, the cellist Michael Müller replacing
Stefan Metz. One fantastic bonus: the most advanced of Bartók string quartet, the No.4, with all the correspondances with
the French one’s.
