    a song of passing years: Brahms, Ravel, Ives, Birtwistle, Enescu

    There are few things as extraordinary as the late works of master composers – intoxicating music that is intimate and personal, highly expressive, and rich with the patina of experience. Enescu composed his second Piano Quartet at the height of World War II, combining folk inflections with late Romantic harmony and impeccable craft to create a supreme masterpiece, wholly unique and deeply affecting.
