Description: This unexpected new release obviates the need to wonder if I was going to be able to offer you these four quartets on the old Caprice label since only the first volume of that series has been re-release in this country. So we have No. 3 (1897/1900), still modeled to some extent on Beethoven, No. 4 (1904/09) notable for its remarkable motivic density, No. 5 (1910), a shorter, lighter work which easily earns its subtitle, and No. 6 (1919), whose pared-down simplicity allied with harmonic complexity led contemporary reviewers to find it harsh, brusque or melancholy. 2 CDs. Oslo String Quartet. CPO SACD hybrid
