Bela Bartok - The Six String Quartets
This is a collection of tapes I made off of a public radio broadcast about 20 years ago. I have no idea who the musicians are or what the credits should be. All I know is that Bela Bartok took the power of Beethoven and launched it into the 20th century with music that explores the very edges of ordered dissonance and harmonic tension without ever letting it break up into chaos. I don't understand any of this stuff, but damn I love it.
