Karl Amadeus Hartmann: Quartetto per archi n.1 "Carillon" (1933)
Simon Wynberg

A powerful musical commentary

Karl Amadeus Hartmann lived out the second world war in self-imposed internal exile, having nothing to do with the Third Reich or its musical world. Composed in 1933, the "Carillon" Quartet was premiered in 1936 at the Gesselschaft für Zeitgenössische Kammermusik in Geneva; performed by the legendary Hungarian String Quartet. The work had won first prize in the city’s Carillon competition. This excellent recording by the Pellegrini Quartet is full of verve, drama and drive.
