The Kelemen Quartet, winner of the 2014 Paolo Borciani International String Quartet Competition, has made meteoric progress since its foundation six years ago in Budapest. Known for its white-hot commitment in performance, the ensemble's recital explores the refinement of Bartók's First String Quartet alongside the single sonata-form movement of Schubert's Quartettsatz.
