A string quartet is a musical ensemble of four string players – usually two violin players, a violist and a cellist – or a piece written to be performed by such a group. The string quartet is one of the most prominent chamber ensembles in classical music, with most major composers, from the late 18th century onwards, writing string quartets.
Famous quotes related to string quartet:
“The most perfect expression of human behavior is a string quartet.”
—Jeffrey Tate (b. 1943)
