    With the Q Casals? Yeah, sure. One of the many good string quartets these days.

    Lately I’ve been listening to the string quartets of Arriaga. I’m
    notsure why they are not better known - while they may not be
    tremendously original, they are distinctive and well constructed. They
    remind me at times of the Beethoven op. 18, and even, (high praise)
    Schubert. Arriaga died in 1826 (at the age of 19!) so he probably didn’t
    know Schubert’s work.

    I’ve long had a CD from the Voces Quartet and while they are fine, I
    recently downloaded the versions by the Cuarteto Casals and they are
    great! Was wondering if folks here are familiar with that group?

    I seem to recall it's one of those 4s in which the first and second violinists swap places.

    The Cuarteto Casals is on spotify. I'm enjoying No. 3 in E-flat.

    There's also an unrelated performing group, the Trio Arriaga, who have
    recorded Spanish works and the Tchaikovsky Op. 50.
