"Awesome intensity ... utter technical command."—The New York Times

It is said that when Irvine Arditti founded his quartet in 1974, the history of contemporary music was forever changed , leaving an indelible mark on the strings repertoire of the 20th century. According to New York Times music critic Anthony Tommasini, Arditti has "one message for composers who dare to write pathbreaking and technically punishing music: 'Bring it on.'"
