String Quartet. A string quartet in quintessential French style, the three movements are highly evocative and melodic. The first movement, Capriccioso, presents opposable melodic themes in an espressivo developed with a carefully articulated structure. The Nocturne evinces the pale colors of twilight, while the Comodo cantabile parodies contrasting moods surrounding a central melody with the interruption of an axial pizzicato episode.
