Dvořák Four Cypresses Nos 2, 3, 9 & 11 9’

Dvořák Waltzes Op.54 Nos.1 & 4* 6½’

Bartók String Quartet No.2, Op.17 27’

Mozart String Sextet in E flat major, K364‡ 30’

Our 'Mozart Quartets Plus' strand concludes with a sextet arrangement of the great Sinfonia Concertante, with Levon Chilingirian and Susie Mészáros taking the solo parts. Dvořák rarities preface Bartók's work – save for a brief period in Dvořák's home land, Bartók was unable to continue his folk music collecting due to the war, and the Quartet's slow gestation from 1915 to 1917 only intensified the composer's drawing on past folk influences.
