Anybody have a few favorite string bands?
Do you prefer performers from a particular era?

Bill Murray "What About Bob" There are two types of people in this world: Those who like Neil Diamond, and those who don't. My ex-wife loves him.

Thank you for posting, Dana.
I have heard good reviews of the Kronos Quartet.
After posting here at Decware, I found a forum dedicated to this kind of music https://www.talkclassical.com/61245-best-string-quartet-ensembles.html

Some nice recommendations there.

I'm still a novice at the music of string quartets. I really like the stereo (they also recorded mono versions) versions of the Beethoven and Batok quartet pieces by the Vegh Quartet. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Végh_Quartet  Their cellist is a feisty one.
 
I also like the most recent recording of the Beethoven by the Tokyo Quartet which is available on SACD. Excellent sound and playing.

I also love the Villa Lobos string quartets performed by the Quarteto Latinoamericano.

Hi, Lon.
I like Vegh Quartet. I had not heard of  Quarteto Latinoamericano. I will have to give them a listen.  Thanks.
