Description: These are student works, from 1878 and 1881; the unfinished one has three movements but lacks a finale. Richard Strauss had very kind words to say about the first one. Both were written at a time when Brahms was the be-all and end-all for conservative critics and composers and there's a little of Brahms in both but Thuille does not engage in Brahms' level of polyphony and, like Haydn, he gives the major thematic material to the first violin, harmonic movement to the cellist with the other two players filling in color and rhythmical elements. Signum Quartet.
