Description: The third quartet stands apart from the other two, dating from 1944 and the first of his compositions to use motifs from his Hollywood film scores (Between Two Worlds and The Sea Wolf). The other works are from his untroubled, pre-war period when everything he touched turned to ultra-Romantic gold. Doric String Quartet.
