Tradition is to the fore in captivating works by Dvořák and Suk (father-in-law and son-in-law) that owe much to Czech folk music with just a hint of transatlantic influence in the ‘American’ quartet. William Walton’s second quartet (1947) is a hugely inventive piece that effortlessly switches between haunting lyricism and concentrated energy.
