    Default Elliott Carter String Quartets

    To compare with a previous thread, a very different set of string quartets I've still got to know in full.

    ^ I do ... do you not?

    I couldn't vote here, just as I couldn't vote for my favourite Beethoven or Bartok quartets. I do greatly like Carter's quartets, perhaps as much as anything he did.

    I find it hard with the one on Naxos (what's the name?), I may try Juilliard later.

    Pacifica. I've only heard the Juilliard recording. Actually 3 and 5 are the only Carter quartets I've heard so I'll not vote. But I do like the 3rd better of the two.
