Rubbra: String Quartet No.2

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
The English composer Edmund Rubbra described the string quartet as 'the purest and most lucid texture available to a composer', his essays in the form enlivened by Beethovenian vigour and song-like beauty.

It is a testament to his profound compositional craftsmanship that even when deploying diverse rhythms simultaneously or releasing the latent potential of what he called the 'most positive yet mysterious intervals', Rubbra weaves fascinating musical textures into a satisfying whole.

His Piano Trio No. 1 foregoes mere virtuosity for spiritual intensity, while several songs show his sensitivity in setting Medieval and Renaissance texts.
