Notes & Reviews:

"...Written in 1905 [No.1]...it is a beautiful late-afternoon kind of piece with myriad dark shadows that take over at the end in a valedictory slow movement...No. 5...is concise and close to neoclassicism. There is even a jocular refrence to the atonality that was occupying Schoenberg at the time. Both are strong and emotionally satisfying works played with sensitivity and power by the Artis Quartet..." -Moore, ARG
