STRAUSS, R.: String Quartet in A Major / PUCCINI, G.: Crisantemi / 3 Minuets in A Major / VERDI, G.: String Quartet (Ensō String Quartet)

Three of the greatest opera composers from the 19th and early 20th centuries are heard on this recording in their only works for string quartet. Richard Strauss’s String Quartet in A major is a youthful work which shows the classical influence of Haydn, while Puccini’s Crisantemi is a brief elegy charged with great emotional intensity. Verdi’s String Quartet in E minor is his only significant chamber work, written at the age of sixty when he was at the height of his fame. The Ensō Quartet’s GRAMMY®-nominated recording of Ginastera’s complete quartets (8.570780) was acclaimed by MusicWeb International for “string quartet playing of jaw-dropping prowess”.
