Usual pairing of two scores that precede the period when the composer of the famous 'American’ Quartet (No. 12) was in his prime. Combining rhythmic invention, which ennobles the natural vigor of a reinvented folklore, bright colors shaded by the importance of the viola part, and a spontaneous melodic outpouring that contrasts with the absorbing melancholy of the slow movements, they give voice to an astonishing feeling of eternal youth and plenitude despite a number of personal dramas that the composer had undergone. It is as though their irresistible animation formed the image of a modern Dvorak approach in this full string quartets collection.
