Debussy: Quartet in G minor for Strings, Op. 10
SOMETHING TO KNOW:
This quartet is the only of his compositions that Debussy gave an opus number to. It represents an attempt to reconcile his idiomatic and groundbreaking style with more classical forms and traditions.
SOMETHING TO LISTEN FOR:
The melodic and rhythmic gesture introduced at the outset of the quartet re-occurs throughout the entire piece, most dramatically at several points in the final movement.
Recorded live in the Daniel and Joanna S. Rose Studio on November 13, 2014.
