The Parker Quartet is the current cream of the young crop of string quartets in the US. Their career got off to a flying start: once they'd won all the major competitions, they launched onto the international scene with staggering maturity. Beethoven is part of their signature repertoire: they know how to bring out the depth and modern style with no useless effects but instead a staggering surge of sound.
