ARS LONGA VITA BREVIS
Quartet No. 12...........Milhaud
"No. 12 is dedicated to the memory of Gabriel Faure for the centenary of his birth (184S). I wanted by this homage to outline the importance of Gabriel Faure and my devotion to his art."
The quartet is in three movements: the first is an animated one, preceded and followed by a few slow bars which are at the same time the elements of an introduction and of a conclusion. The mood of the piece is quiet.
The second movement is slow and peaceful. The finale is rapid with elements scherzo-like, some lyrical, others pastoral.
