String Quartet in B flat major, Op 44 No 2
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
In the String Quartet in B flat major Op 44 No 2, in three movements, Gyrowetz is closer to Schubert than Haydn, especially in the first movement, indulging more in his tendency for unusual key changes and harmonic shifts, closer textures and more lyrical thematic material. The peace of the F major central slow movement is broken by the more dramatic mood of the central section in F minor. Gyrowetz returns to Classical roots for the jolly finale with its occasional attempt at Haydnesque humour.
