Rued Langgaard's string quartets are passionate works from the eccentric composer's youth. This third and concluding release in the Gramophone Award-winning Nightingale String Quartet's acclaimed CD series presents the premiere recording of Langgaard's very first string quartet, which the composer began at the age of 21 in 1914. Like the subsequent quartets, it is shot through with moving musical references to the fateful summer the year before, when the composer met the (hopeless) love of his life.
