Taneyev Complete String Quartets Vol 3

Carpe Diem String Quartet

Sergey Taneyev was a pivotal figure in Russian musical life. A student and later close friend of Tchaikovsky, he was the teacher of Rachmaninov and Scriabin. Taneyev's chamber music represents some of the most distinguished music of its time, expertly crafted and revealing a masterly control of form. His quartets are especially notable. No 7 in E-flat major is an early work whose classicism recalls Mozart and Beethoven but whose expressive power is concentrated in its lovely slow movement. No 5 in A major Op 13 is a melodically appealing work, at times energetic and dramatic, at others playful and exuberant.
