Product description

This fascinating disc contrasts William Walton's two works for string quartet, one written in 1947 at the height of his popularity and the other completed in 1922 when he was a young man of 20. For the latter, the Emperor Quartet uses Walton's autograph score which contains a number of differences from the one published by OUP. In justification of this decision the cellist William Schofield writes, "What emerged was a more confident and more experimental work than we had anticipated. Walton in 1920 sounds more modern than Walton in 1940". It's true: the earlier work is bolder, rougher and more harmonically daring, while the later is more winsome and traditionally structured--though, interestingly, both contain fugues. The Emperors play both works with intelligence and insight, delivering the fugal writing with exemplary clarity and the more lyrical passages with sweet-toned warmth. If you put the disc in your PC CD-ROM drive, it links to a dedicated Web site which contains slightly fuller liner notes, updated information about the Emperor Quartet and tour dates, and audio snippets of other works in the Black Box catalogue. This is recommended. --Warwick Thompson
