Beethoven Quartet in E flat major, Op.74, The Harp 32'
Tippett Quartet No.2 21'
Brahms String Quintet in F major, Op.88

After hearing Tippett's 2nd Quartet, William Glock declared: 'A new composer has emerged in English Music'. Beethoven in 1809 and Tippett in 1942 composed against the backdrop of war. The Brahms quintet reflects a different Europe entirely. An aural journey with the binding thread of both Tippett's and Brahms's veneration of Beethoven.
