Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Mátyás Seiber’s three string quartets span his career - from the astonishingly assured student essay of the first quartet, composed at age eighteen, to the mature synthesis of his third and final Quartetto Lirico. Seiber’s work was nourished by several of the 20th century’s most significant stylistic trends, from jazz and serialism to the folk music of his native Hungary. He was also, like many of the mid-century’s most important artists, an émigré and an influential teacher; Hugh Wood’s booklet essay pays tribute to his lasting influence on a generation of British composers.
