About this Recording

HINDEMITH, P.: String Quartets, Vol. 3 (Amar Quartet) - Nos. 1 and 4

Hindemith’s seven string quartets were produced in different phases of his compositional development, all reflecting the experience of being a distinguished and experienced string player. Influenced both by Brahmsian late-Romanticism and by the catastrophic events of the First World War, the imaginative String Quartet No. 1 reflects his concern to extend but honour traditional forms. Cast in the form of a suite, the by turns tempestuous and beautiful String Quartet No. 4 remains Hindemith’s most popular and performed quartet. This is the third and final volume of a highly acclaimed cycle. ‘As with the previous release in this series, the performances are all outstanding.’ ( / 8.572164, Volume 2)
