Notes & Reviews:

The Czech composer Martinu was enormously prolific as a composer. With seven numbered quartets, the string quartet was one of his favorite forms of composition. His String Quartet No. 3, written in Paris in 1929, while exploring new timbres, has discernible elements of contemporary French influence and textures that occasionally recall Debussy. String Quartet No. 6, written in New York in 1946, is noteworthy for its Bartokian textures and rhythms.
