Quartet in E-flat major (1943)......Hindemith
The first movement begins with a fugue of a very deep and quiet character; the second movement is in sonata form in typical Hindemith style. The third movement is a theme with four variations in a lyrical mood; and the fourth movement begins with a majestic theme, the middle section, with a fugue, and then all the themes from the previous movements are interwoven together. The work ends with a coda of Harlequinesque character. The whole work is masterfully written.
Dedicated to the Budapest String Quartet and first performed by them at the Library of Congress on November 11, 1943.
