Joseph Jongen, a Belgian composer, now a professor at Brussels Conscrvatoire, will be remembered by many musicians as at one time associated with a Quartet that included also Lionel Tertis and gave many concerts in England during the war. In his early period, of which this Quartet, composed in 1902, is a product, he clearly showed his spiritual affinity with his countryman César Franck, although he has since developed a more pronounced individuality. It was with this Quartet, however, that he established his reputation. Although of unusual length, it is remarkable for the sustained beauty of its themes, and for the delicacy and dignified taste natural to the composer, one of whose merits is his restraint and dislike of exuberant display for its own sake. Its four movements are in cyclic form, inclining to classicism. The Scherzo, elfin-like and sprightly, is sometimes played separately.
