    They did the same in Boston a couple of years ago. They were terrific, but I have to confess that I found it to be too much Bartok in one evening (three quartets in two concerts).

    Glad to see we're off headphones now!!!!

    There is indeed no such thing as too much Bartók.

    I saw the Orion Quartet play the set in the same manner. One of the most intense concert-going experiences I've ever had. And the audience as a whole seemed as rapt as I was.
