Bach for a string quartet? The Eliot Quartett achieves this feat by performing arrangements of Bach works with differing instrument combinations. This brings out the finesse of the polyphonic structures of the pieces even more graphically. Framing the Bach arrangements are original compositions by Joseph Haydn and Dmitri Shostakovich. Both composers breathed new life into the quartet genre with their works and were huge admirers of the contrapuntal technique of Johann Sebastian Bach.
