4. The Quartet

The most common quartet is the string quartet (2 violins, viola, cello).

Other good combinations include:

2 violins, cello, and piano

violin, flute, cello, and piano

The string quartet is a staple in Western classical music.  There is almost everything arranged

for string quartet these days, from movie scores (e.g., Twilight) to Stairway to Heaven to Sinatra. 

With a solid chunk of classical repertoire and such a high profile in our culture, a string quartet

will impress and set the tone at any event, from high-profile corporate parties to wedding
