- Two scores that frame the period when the composer of the famous 'American’ Quartet (No.12) was in his prime.
Combining rhythmic invention, bright colours, only dimmed by the importance of the viola part, and a spontaneous melodic outpouring that contrasts with the absorbing melancholy of the slow movements, they give voice to a happy idiom despite the number of personal dramas the composer had undergone. Elements of folk nationalism pervade reminding us of a people that was going to become a nation once again in 1918.
