On their ECM New Series debut, the Boston-based Parker Quartet, hailed by the Washington Post for “exceptional virtuosity and imaginative interpretation,” play music of György Kurtág and are joined by violist Kim Kashkashian, one of the quartet’s early mentors, to play Dvořák. In this powerful program of contrasts, Dvořák’s outgoing String Quintet No. 3 is framed by two of Kurtág’s concentrated, meticulously shaped works.
