Catalogue Number: 01Q033
Description: Stanford's 1879 quartet is full of youthful high spirits with a Brahmsian adagio that melts in your mouth and the 1899 second trio (only available recording) sports an adventurous harmonic palette with a slow movement of Beethovenian pathos and outer movements notable for their defiant turbulence. Gould Piano Trio, David Adams (viola).
