Catalogue Number: 12K078
Description: Alwyn himself pointed out how much he owed to Smetana, Dvorak and Janacek in his first quartet and the latter composer is also present, subconsciously assimilated to Alwyn's own style, in the more austere second and in the third, his last work, which ends in a timeless serenity. Maggini Quartet.
