QUARTET: Samuel Kutcher (violin); Frederick Grinke (violin); Raymond Jeremy (viola) ; Douglas Cameron (violoncello)
Comparing the A minor Quartet of Brahms with its companion work in C minor (Op. 51, No. i), Dr. Hermann Deiters says that in its feminine tender ness and plaintive charm it stands in marked contrast to it. ' In the first movement of this Quartet ', he goes on to say, ' the principal subject is simply but clearly worked out, while the second theme expresses a deep, touching tenderness. The melodious slow .movement overflows with hope and resignation and breathes a tone of earnest meditation, afterwards broken into, in the Scherzo, by an outburst of quick, pulsating vitality. The last movement is full of energy and newly-acquired confidence, so that a searching enquiry into the spirit of the work will disclose the four movements joined in a poetic unity '.
