I have recently finished a string quartet in G minor and is not intended to bring trivialities to market. It strives towards breadth, soaring flight and above all resonance for the instruments for which it is written. So wrote Grieg about his only string quartet and it says much for the ambition of this young Quartet that they chose to programme it for there are few quartets with the sheer sonic power needed for this huge work. Mendelssohn composed his E minor quartet on his honeymoon, Everything flows so easily and delightfully from my pen at this time, he wrote.
