Composers

Notes & Reviews:

After the successful release of part one in December 2008, the Ruysdael Quartet continues its journey with part two of the 'Russian Generations' series. The new recording features second string quartets by Tchaikovsky as well as both Sergei and Gabriel Prokofiev. Tchaikovsky's second quartet is a seldom-performed masterpiece, with one of the most intensely personal slow movements the composer ever wrote. This is juxtaposed with Sergei Prokofiev's Op. 92, an exhilarating dance-like piece based on Kabardinian folk tunes. Gabriel Prokofiev's second quartet, like its predecessor, is a thrilling work with a gripping rhythmic drive. But here the instruments are stretched even further to the extremes of their capabilities, creating a fascinating sound world.
