Webern Fünf Sätze for String Quartet op 5
Haydn String Quartet in C Major op 20 no 2
Joe Chindamo String Quartet no 1, Tempesta
Mendelssohn String Quartet no 6 in F minor op 80
Webern managed to condense a lifetime of thoughts into these five succinct and beautifully crafted gems that seem to disappear right before our ears. Haydn’s early quartet from op 20 counters this with well-balanced classical logic and stark beauty. The fresh and quick-fire new style in Australian composer/pianist Joe Chindamo’s Tempesta, is a world away from the palpable anguish and heart-torn emotion in Mendelssohn’s final quartet, written in despair following the death of his sister Fanny. It was to be his last quartet.
