Ludwig van Beethoven's String Quartet № 3 Performed by Ensemble Ditto and Béla Bartók's String Quartet № 1 Performed by the Parker Quartet

"Some of the best-looking classical musicians are in town to perform at the third Ditto Festival to be held at various venues around Seoul, starting today," reports the Korea Times' Kwaak Je-yup — Ditto evolves with new talent and repertoire.

Noting that "[t]he festival marks its third year of a nauseating mix of in-your-face commercialism and classical music," Mr. Kwaak notes that the first of the above ensembles is "[p]opularly known for playing to a sold-out audience full of Korean female fans in their 20s with little knowledge of classical music."
