Description: This final volume features the two early quartets (1891 and 1893) which share a concern for meticulous use of individual instrument voices and a leaning towards lyricism. Allusions to Beethoven and Mozart are contained within Stanford’s own beautifully crafted music. Heard here in its premiere recording, the Sixth (1910) is a work of rich contrasts, restless energy and some of Stanford’s most expressive writing for the medium. Dante Quartet.
