Alexander Zemlinsky’s four numbered string quartets span some four decades, moving from the conservatism of his Brahms-inspired youth to the experimental works of his mature years. Written just after the Lyric Symphony, the Third Quartet is constructed in a cool, austere language far removed from the emotional, expressionistic atmosphere of the Second Quartet. The Fourth Quartet, written in memory of Alban Berg, is a fitting conclusion to an important body of work bridging the Romantic world of the nineteenth century to the modern age of the twentieth. 

"...The recording has good sound, and he Escher Quartet ... plays with comitment and accuracy. They have a gritty tone quality that’s essential for this style of music. If you’re new to this rediscovered master, the usic is terrific, but be aware that some of it is astringent listening. The good news - it’s worth it."
