This young German ensemble expounds Ginastera’s first two quartets – the folkloric-Bartókian First and the expressionistic-Bartókian 12-note Second – with all the affectionate bravura they deserve. But the disc is short measure, especially when you can acquire all three of the Argentinian’s quartets, similarly handsomely done by the Lyric Quartet, on ASV. Calum MacDonald
