Brentano String Quartet by Jürgen Frank
Explore how composers put their distinctive mark on the string quartet. Mozart did it with forward-looking harmonies in one of his six dedicated to Haydn, but its wit and genial tone suggest the influence of the dedicatee. Ravel stressed color, melody, and rhythmic daring when composing his masterful String Quartet in F Major—one of his finest creations. Its two central movements are particularly noteworthy: The second evokes Javanese gamelan music and the third shimmers with vivid color.
