Petersen Quartett - On Tour

"There are some very fine young string quartets around these days, but I have heard none finer than the Petersen j Quartet."
The Times, London

"Fearless...revelatory freshness and urgency. This was risky playing, not as gaudy exhibitionism, but as starkly honest and unfettered expression, and its rich rewards will linger long."
Los Angeles Times

The Film:
A film team accompanied the quartet on its tour through the USA, in cities and music centres like Washington, Pittsburgh and New York. They documented everyday life during a concert tour as well as rehearsals, the private life and the social life of the four band members.
Through impressive statements, concert clips and backstage views, one quickly gains the insight that life on tour despite success and recognition does not only consist of glamour.
