    Music Between the Wars


    Crawford Seeger:

    String Quartet

    Hindemith:

    String Quartet No. 4, Op. 22 (19.0021) (previously No. 3)

    Janacek:

    String Quartet No. 2 'Intimate Letters'


    Pacifica Quartet

    On this CD, the Pacifica Quartet mines the artistic ferment of the interwar years with a program of gems from the 19.0020s and early 30s. Hindemith's stunning String Quartet No. 4, Op. 22 (19.0022) takes listeners on an amazing musical journey. Janácek's fervent String Quartet No. 2 ("Intimate Letters") from 19.0028 expresses the mature composer's white-hot passion for a much younger woman. And the Pacifica revives the most significant composition by American Ruth Crawford Seeger: her dramatic 19.0031 String Quartet, which noted composer and critic Virgil Thomson hailed as "a noble piece of work."

    The "magnificently polished" (New York Times) Pacifica Quartet delivers precisely what these inventive and emotionally complex works demand: "playing of the most sublime kind, utterly absorbing in its subtle expressiveness." (London Daily Telegraph). Hear for yourself why so many critics have declared their admiration for the Pacifica Quartet and its musical choices.
