WorksString Quartet no.1 in C major, op.2 (1914-15) (previously unnumbered)
String Quartet no.4, op.22 (previously no.3)
Hindemith’s seven string quartets were produced in different phases of his compositional development, all reflecting the experience of being a distinguished and experienced string player.
Influenced both by Brahmsian late-Romanticism and by the catastrophic events of the First World War, the imaginative String Quartet No.1 reflects his concern to extend but honour traditional forms. Cast in the form of a suite, the by turns tempestuous and beautiful String Quartet No.4 remains Hindemith’s most popular and performed quartet.
This is the third and final volume of a highly acclaimed cycle.
‘As with the previous release in this series, the performances are all outstanding.’ - ClassicsToday.com (Vol.2)
