Julliard String Quartet - String Quartet in F Major, Maurice Ravel
Patrick Lopez

String Quartet in F Major - Ravel

Written in 1904, it was initially met with widespread criticism and rejection. It was rejected by the Prix de Rome and the Conservatoire de Paris. Ultimately, Ravel left the Conservatoire because of the negative reception. The person it was dedicated to, Gabriel Faure, even criticized it, calling the last movement a failure. However, the quartet did receive approval from the public. Debusssy advised him not to change a single note. The popular support continued and grew - today this is one of the most widely performed works of the repertoire.
