About this Recording

HILL, Alfred: String Quartets, Vol. 2 (Dominion String Quartet) - Nos. 4, 6, 8

While Hill’s first three string quartets were reminiscent of Dvorˇák and Tchaikovsky, these three demonstrate new directions. With the slow movement of Quartet No. 4 hinting at influences of Elgar, and Quartet No. 6 conceived in a kind of retro-classical idiom, Quartet No. 8 clearly marks the beginning of a new sound world, with hints of the musical language of the impressionists and a rather English sounding Finale. Hill’s trademark slow movement gems remain a feature in all three quartets with the outer movements offering memorable melodies and much finesse in his string quartet writing.
