Quartet in F major, Op. 18, No. 1......Beethoven
This is the first quartet that Beethoven ever wrote, and it clearly indicates the greatness of the master. Although he adhered religiously to the strict quartet form as established by Haydn, nevertheless, he poured his broad musical thoughts and extraordinary invention into this work.
Quartet in C major. Op. 49.......Shostakovich
Probably the most played of modern writers at the moment, this remarkable young Russian composer delivers himself here of a lively, characteristic work. Clear thematic material, ingenious mingling of the four voices, and sharply contrasting elements make this quartet a highly effective one.
Quartet in F major, Op. 96 (American Quartet) . . . Dvorak
Since Dvorak composed it while a resident of this country, this is known as the "American Quartet." With unusual success he put aside his Bohemian "self," and utilized American themes, achieving our idiom with happiest results. The composition has long been a popular favorite.
