Description: Surinach's piece is one of his earliest - 1944 - and has flavors of his native Spain but his education had been in Germany, giving this quartet a cosmopolitan feel with just a hint of Iberian flavor peeking through. Tansman's suite dates from 1929 and is a highly piquant, neo-classical work seasoned with Polish folk music in its Scherzino (Polka) and an eerie, Bartókian Nocturne, just to pick out two of its six winning movements. Ames Piano Quartet.
