Ernest Chausson did not compose much chamber music, but the works he did leave in this genre are usually extremely beautiful. His 'String Quartet' is no exception: with its lyricism, elegant rhythms, concentrated contrapuntal scripture and subtle thematic variations it is a composition of the highest standards. Unfortunately, it remained unfinished due to the composer’s sudden death.
