Verdi Quartet

The voices are all of good quality and large volume, skillfully blended to avoid any effect of heaviness.
Three men and a woman compose it, and yield uncommonly agreeable effects in the ensembles.
The singing is unrelieved by any incidental, and perhaps for this reason the reception by the audience was not particularly enthusiastic. Several of the grand opera organizations have overcome this common defect by using special settings, and acting out scenes from the operas of which their selections are parts. The Verdi Quartet could follow this arrangement with profit.
