THE BROSA STRING QUARTET: BROSA, GREENBAUM, RUBENS, Pini
BAX'S second String Quartet, which is in only three Movements, is dedicated to Vaughan Williams. Its First Movement opens with an unusual device—a brief solo for the 'Cello, in free declamatory style, which is taken up by Viola, 'Cello then accompanying.
The Second Movement is full of broadly expressive melody, enriched in Bax's very individual manner. The end of this is particularly lovely.
The Last Movement has tremendous, elemental vitality, with one or two swift and surprising changes of mood. NINON VALLIN
THIS Quartet is dated ' November-December,
1915 ' (when the Composer was twenty-two).
Each movement is dedicated, ' with due regard for appropriateness,' to a member of the Philharmonic String Quartet, in which Goossens formerly played Second Violin. The FIRST MOVEMENT, dedicated to ' A. B.' (Arthur Beck -with) is marked Allegro con grazia (Quick and graceful). The SECOND MOVEMENT (' R. J.'-Raymond Jeremy ) is expressive, slow and sustained. The FINALE (' C. S.'-Cedric Sharpe ) is marked Allegro giocoso quasi burlesca—Quick, gay, and in a burlesque style.
