Clarinet Quartet No 2 in C minor, Op 4
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Allgemeine Muzikalische Zeitung, in reviewing the second quartet, said it was very much a soloist’s work with the strings playing a supportive role. It is simpler than the other two quartets, few technical demands being made of any of the players. The clarinettist’s lovely chromatic anacrusis falling into the final major section of the Rondo is reminiscent of the first quartet. The dedicatee was inordinately pleased with his work and no doubt often had it played at his house.
