The first volume of the premiere recordings of Jurgis Karnavičiusís (1884Ė1941) string quartets performed by the Vilnius String Quartet resulted in a growing number of excellent album reviews. It included the composerís romantic and folkmusic-inspired first two quartets. This second volume includes the composerís last two quartets: nos. 3 and 4 which are more expressive and modern in nature. Karnavičius wrote his four impressive string quartets during his study and teaching years in St Petersburg during the 1910s and 1920s, filling the chronological and stylistic gap between the string quartets of Tchaikovsky and Shostakovich.
