String Quartets 2[SACD-Hybrid]
~ Stenhammar Quartet(Hybrid SACD)
On this second disc of the Stenhammar Quartet's survey, these two late works frame a world premiere recording, namely that of the Quartet in F minor which Stenhammar completed in 1897, but withdrew after a successful first performance in 1898. While describing the quartet's middle movements as 'fresh and joyful,' Stenhammar expressed severe doubts regarding the final movement and for a long time harbored the idea of replacing it, before finally giving up on the work. The first modern performance of the quartet took place in 2001, and now the Stenhammar Quartet is offering a wider audience the opportunity to judge for itself.
