Description: The F minor quartet receiving its first recording here is not an early, youthful work; it postdates the first two quartets and dates from 1897. The composer was unhappy about its finale and, though it was performed a few times and well received, Stenhammar never had it published, considering writing a new finale as late as 1916 but never getting beyond a couple of pages while the rest of the work demonstrates a considerable advance on its predecessors in its use of thematic material and experimentation with contrasting styles.
