Late works, Duos, Trios
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – F Major Quartet K590
Jeremy Dale Roberts – Croquis (1979)
Béla Bartók – Duos : Book 4 (1922)
Beethoven – F Major Quartet Op 135
The Kreutzer Quartet present four great works. Beethoven and Mozart’s late F Major quartets are both fundamentally experimental works, splitting the quartet into duos and trios, exploring the lightness of touch and gesture only possible with a profound command of the medium.
Jeremy Dale Roberts, who died in 2017, wrote music of extraordinary concentration and grace. His 1979 cycle for string trio, ‘Croquis’, is a masterpiece, full of allusions to the music, art and literature which Dale Roberts loved, as well as some of the most virtuoso writing for any chamber group.
Béla Bartók’s 1922 duos offer a window into his ‘composer’s workshop’, bringing the folk material he had gathered at the beginning of his career together with his extraordinary command of writing for strings at its most colourful and succinct.
