Alexander Mossolov: String Quartet No. 1 Op. 24

10/22/2014

Alexander Mossolov was one of the most prominent composers in revolutionary Russia. Prior to being subjected to Stalinist censorship, he was famous for pieces including Iron Foundry, an emblem of Soviet Futurism. Although his First String Quartet (from 1926) fits into classical moulds, it is a decidedly avant-garde work whose most outstanding features are the timbral exploration of the first movement, the quotation of Kyrgyz motives in the second, the irony of the third and the stark contrasts between vigorous and melancholic passages in the finale.
