They made the first classical music movie in the 1970s, and recorded the first classical music CD for Philips. I Musici consists of 12 soloists playing without a conductor, and constantly impresses audiences with its ability to achieve the full sonority of a string orchestra without sacrificing the clarity and the utter precision of a string quartet.
