The String Quartet
Swiss-born Joachim Raff (1822-1882) has not always been a composer of string quartets. For a young member of the “Neudeutsche Schule” led by leading names as Liszt and Wagner, string quartets, unlike orchestral works with a clear programme, were not exactly an appealing area to become specialised in. Still, Raff left eight beautiful quartets.
