Description: These quartets are attractive and approachable across the almost 35 years which separate them, with the first being a combination of what passed for avant-garde gestures at that time mixed with a graceful lyricism, a lyricism which is present throughout the tuneful, almost neo-romantic Second (1941-42) while the Fourth of 1977-78 is more dissonant, modeled on Beethoven's Op. 131 and including a well-known four-note motive from that work in its final section. Tippett Quartet.
