Brahms made many attempts at string quartet-writing but only three of them met his perfectionist standards and were published. This talented young French ensemble play all of these intensely personal works in two concerts, here adding Webern’s early quartet movement, a musical love-letter to his future wife.

Quatuor Agate … endlessly delight the ear with their phrasing
