The amazing symphonic-sounding joy of playing of the 17 strings of the SKO is difficult to describe in Grieg, but it can be heard. Grieg himself emphasized how much "lifeblood" was in his quartet. This is also shown by the young piano talent Robert Neumann in the Beethoven concerto. In 2021, he received the Opus Klassik as Young Artist of the Year.
