Who ARE These Guys ?

Recommended Posts

I've recently "discovered," and been hugely enjoying string quartet videos (the ones where the score is shown on the screen) by a group that's -- most frustratingly -- never named.

A picture of them is shown, briefly, at the beginning of this video;

If someone would post the name of this quartet, I would be hugely grateful.

 

Thank You in Advance

it's the Alban Berg Quartet, from Vienna, ca 1990.The Beethoven on yt is their bestselling EMI recording (alledgedly more than 1 million copies sold).They retired in 2008, not long after the death of the violist Thomas Kakushka. Pretty much every string quartet has studied with them.
