The success of the Kneisel Quartet is due to the long and arduous practice which the members have enjoyed together, for perfection in quartet playing is only possible through long association.

While virtuosity is not essential for quartet playing, good musicianship is very necessary.  Patient and self-denying practice are absolute requisites.

The love of chamber music is apparently growing in the United States, for in many of the large cities quartets have been established by good musicians, and the opportunities for hearing fine interpretations of the best chamber music are increasing each year.  It is a branch of musical art which appeals only to cultivated taste, for it is necessarily free from sensationalism and individual display.  Therefore, the love of quartet playing may be considered to be a true index of the growth of musical culture.
