- Cihat Askin (Violin)
Notes & Reviews:
"brutish nature of the discussion. The 1934 String Quartet was written in order to make a "big statement" when he was only 22 years old. Anytime a composer writes one of these, he risks a comparison with Haydn, Beethoven, and Mozart, and so you might expect some sort of additional profundity in this work, but it is simply not there. What is remarkable is that right from the beginning Françaix remains the Françaix that we all know, and his amazing technique is already there. Over the years his harmonic capabilities were to develop and mature, but the seeds of his ever-insistent iconoclast style are easily detected in this early work, a piece that won a chamber music prize and no doubt helped the young composer establish himself. It has two very playful outer movements, the requisite Andante of subtly wistful tenor, and the trademark Scherzo always taken literally as a joke by this composer, who put some of his most delightful music in this form. Lencses is on stunningly good behavior here, and the sound is excellent." -ARG
