Anton Webern: String Quartet, Op. 28 (1938)
  • Classical music I. Mässig II. Gemächlich III. Sehr fliessend Twelve-tone work using Webern's typical distillations of classical form: variations (mvt. 1), scherzo (mvt. 2) and rondo (mvt. 3). Through the use of canon and fugue in the second and particularly third movements, he was proud of his fusion of "horizontal" and "vertical" methods of composition. Lasalle Quartet performs. Art by Paul Klee.
