The generation of composers which proved so influential in mid-twentieth century America included Roger Sessions, Howard Hanson, Roy Harris and Quincy Porter. Porter’s much-admired orchestral music is marked by originality in its absorption of neo-classicism, but his series of nine string quartets also represents an important contribution to the genre.
Quartets Nos 5 to 8 are the works of a composer who had been a professional string player in the 1920s, and are marked by rhythmic sophistication and melodic tension.
‘A very enjoyable disc which whets one’s appetite for the remaining five quartets.’ – Penguin Guide on Vol.1 (8.559305).
