Founded in 1946 at the Juilliard School in New York, the LaSalle Quartet became famous for championing the work of the Second Viennese School and commissioning new pieces by contemporary composers. This book is based on extensive interviews with the quartet's first violinist Walter Levin, and combines reminiscences about their concerts and teaching activities with his insightful commentary on their wide-ranging repertoire. Appendices list every work performed by the quartet, both in concert and on disc.
