Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Rooted in the chamber music of Brahms and Beethoven, there is a Romantic expression to Wolf's quartets that goes beyond these two composers to Wagner. You can hear the presence of one of history's great lieder composers in these works: the violin is given much of the melodic material, which is quite vocal in it's contour. Standing at the center of the quartet is a sublime slow movement that sounds as if Schubert had composed "Tristan und Isolde." This is fine music, lovingly played.
