PROGRAM NOTES
Quartet in D major, Op. 11.......Tchaikovsky
The famous Russian's contribution to chamber music embraced three quartets, a string sextet, and several trios for piano, violin, and violoncello. The quartet programmed here is his first work in this form. It is rich in melody and harmonization, and closely observes the traditional quartet structure. Most beloved of all chapters in string quartet literature is the second movement with its typical Slavic melancholy.
"Rispetti e Strambotti".........Malipiero
The title chosen by Malipiero for this extraordinarily colorful quartet defies exact translation, according to those who know. The "rispetto" is sort of an old Italian love song, and "strambotto" is a term given to imitations of it by cultivated poets. Strictly modern, Malipiero dispenses with customary musical form, and instead, in this work, composes a long chain of tiny, contrasted, independent movements which he calls "stanzas." There are twenty "stanzas" in this quartet, which, incidentally, was the prize-winning quartet at the 1920 Pittsfield Festival.
Quartet in G minor, Op. 33, No. S......Boccherini
Boccherini was a contemporary of Haydn. He brought a certain romantic element in the very classical feeling and form of his time.
