Now that Enescu’s rich and complex symphonies have done well on disc, it’s the turn of the string quartets. Their subtleties and thematic resourcefulness deserve the profound understanding of these Romanian players. Countless haunting passages will lead you back to try and grasp the whole; the effort, as always with Enescu, is worthwhile. David Nice
