Vienna Philharmonia Quartet:
Franz Samohyl (violin)
Siegfried Rumpold (violin)
August Pioro (viola)
Richard Harand (cello)
Before an audience in the Concert Hall, Broadcasting House, London
The six string quartets. Op. 76, written at the same time as The Creation, represent Haydn at the height of his powers. The third of the set, in C, is known as the ' Emperor ' Quartet, because the slow movement is a set of variations on the famous Austrian hymn which Haydn had written a few months before; in the four variations, the theme is given successively to the second violin, cello, viola, and first violin. Other remarkable features are the Trio of the Minuet, which contains a tiny trio within itself, and the finale, which begins in the minor key.
Brahms hesitated before giving his first string quartet to the world almost as long as he delayed the composition of his first symphony, and in both cases the first was a dramatic work in C mmor, and was followed shortly afterwards by a second, gentler in character. The Second Quartet has a reflective opening movement, with one of Brahms' most beautiful melodies for second subject, an Andante of remarkable harmonic subtlety, a grave minuet with a vivacious, scherzo-like trio, and an energetic finale full of intricate cross-rhythms.
