RIT String Quartet, Dvorak, Grieg - "American" String Quartet / String Quartet No. 1 mp3 album

The String Quartet in F major, Op. 96, nicknamed the American Quartet, is the 12th string quartet composed by Antonín Dvořák. It was written in 1893, during Dvořák's time in the United States. The quartet is one of the most popular in the chamber music repertoire. Dvořák composed the quartet in 1893 during a summer vacation from his position as director (1892–1895) of the National Conservatory in New York City.

The young Escher String Quartet made a huge splash with their Mendelssohn quartet cycle and this follow-up maintains the impressive standard-playing of style, finesse, and surprising power done with intensity. They can also make the music sing out, a quality absolutely essential in Borodin's famous and gorgeous Notturno and Tchaikovsky’s Andante cantabile, movements bursting with great melodies. They also get right under the skin of the Dvořák American quartet with rhythmic vitality  . This fine album gathers together three of the most popular Romantic works from the string-quartet repertoire.

Including Mendelssohn's String Quartet No. 2 in A Minor and an arrangement of Paganini's Caprice for violin solo No. 20 in D Major, the highlight of the release is their intense and heartfelt performance of Grieg's String Quartet No. 1 in G Minor, a lesser heard gem of the string quartet repertoire.
