From the opening funeral dirge of the First Quartet to the incandescent frenzy that concludes the Fifth, this disc offers a genuine panorama of the Bartókian universe. A world unto itself, constantly stamped with the heritage of Hungarian folklore so dear to the composer: two years after a first volume devoted to the even-numbered works (nos. 2, 4 and 6), the musicians of the Jerusalem Quartet expertly complete their recording of a key cycle of modern chamber music, a musical saga drawn on the scale of a lifetime!

Du chant funèbre ouvrant le Premier Quatuor à la frénésie incandescente parachevant le Cinquième, c’est un véritable panorama de l'univers bartokien qu’il nous est donné de contempler. Un monde en soi, constamment marqué par l'héritage du folklore hongrois si cher au compositeur : deux ans après un premier volume consacré aux volumes "pairs" (n°s 2, 4 et 6), les musiciens du Jerusalem Quartet bouclent en experts un cycle incontournable de la musique de chambre moderne, une fresque musicale dessinée à l’échelle d’une vie !
