String Quartet in G major, Op 44 No 1

composer
1804

 
The String Quartet in G major Op 44 No 1 has an opening movement whose simple four-bar figure reappears throughout. The following Adagio in D major is conversation-like with its dotted rhythms and triplet passages. This quartet is marked by a minuet which could easily be mistaken for Haydn and the echoes of the finale of Haydn’s Quartet in G major (Op 77 No 1) of 1799 in relation to the concluding Allegro has been remarked upon.

Le Quatuor à cordes en sol majeur op. 44 no 1 présente un mouvement d’ouverture dont la simple figure de quatre mesures reparaît de bout en bout. L’Adagio suivant, en ré majeur, est conversant, avec ses rythmes pointés et ses passages en triolets. Ce quatuor est marqué par un menuet qui pourrait facilement être pris pour du Haydn, et l’on notera les échos du finale du Quatuor en sol majeur (op.77 n°1) de ce dernier (1799) dans l’Allegro conclusif.

Das Quartett Op. 44 Nr. 1 hat einen Kopfsatz, dessen schlichte viertaktige Figur immer wieder erscheint. Das folgende Adagio in D-Dur mit seinen punktierten Rhythmen und Triolen scheint im Plauderton gehalten zu sein. Dies Quartett ist durch ein Menuett gekennzeichnet, das ohne weiteres mit einem von Haydn verwechselt werden könnte, und die Anklänge des abschließenden Allegro an das Finale von Haydns Quartett in G-Dur von 1799 (op. 77, Nr. 1) haben zu Kommentaren Anlaß gegeben.
