String Quartet, Un notturno nella Maniera di E. TH. A Hoffmann
Well after many years of contemplating this part of Atterberg's oeuvre I finally bought this interpretation, for the sound samples made me more than curious after the whole result of the Stenhammar Quartet. And I must say I am pretty impressed, more so as I expected. I say from my standpoint these are reference recordings and near perfectly recorded. Tempi are well chosen, and every phrase has deep meaning to it. The way this Quartet colours the music is astonishing to say the least. Also the precision with which they execute every melody without fault is a feat of technical brilliance and leaves nothing to be desired whatsoever. Atterberg at it's finest, a worthy addition to his orchestral works. Rangström is a man to to reckoned with also, his music is as mesmerizing as Atterberg's and has a deepness of thought that keeps lingering in your ears. Another kind of brilliance but as effective in portraying the musical argument. A short work, but devastatingly beautiful. Tonal music, a bit stretched but not too much so. Brilliantly conceived.
Recommended. No need to hold back.
