ZYGMUNT NOSKOWSKI (1846-1909): String Quartets No. 1 in D Minor, Op. 9 and No. 2 in E.
Catalogue Number: 03L061
Label: Acte Préalable
Description: Our third Noskowski release in less than a year (piano music last April on this label, symphonic music on Sterling last September) now brings us chamber music -two of his four quartets. The first dates from 1875 and the second from 1883; both tend toward absolute music in the way the symphony does except for the finales, which are obereks, and hints of the krakowiak in the allegretto second movement of No. 2. Four Strings Quartet.
