PROGRAM NOTES
Quartet in D major, No. 2 . .......Borodin
This work of the Russian composer ranks as one of the outstanding in chamber music. It is filled with melody, ripe harmonic ideas, and discloses a master's hand at construction and development. The Notturno is a particularly popular movement.
Quartet No. 4 (1931)........Quincy Porter
(Dedicated to the Roth Quartet)
A splendid example of this gifted American composer's rich musical gifts and surety of strong, colorful expression. It ranks among the finest in contemporary chamber music.
Quartet in B-flat major (K. 458) (Hunting Quartet) . . Mozart
The semblance of a hunting horn theme has given this famous composition the name, "The Hunting Quartet." It is one of Mozart's masterpieces and is dedicated to his old teacher, Haydn, who, as he declared, taught him how to write a quartet. In it are shining reflections of Mozart's great melodic gifts and vivacity.
