Joseph Jongen, Quatuor, op. 122 (1942)

Quatuor, op. 122 (1942), Joseph Jongen

Buffalo News critic Herman Trotter reviewed the Quatour 0p.122 as follows, "The composer drew from a number of styles; big and bombastic, simple and folk like, and deftly jazz influenced." Jongen was one of the best known Belgian composers in the 20th century, writing some 241 works, but near the end of his life, applying severe standards of self-criticism, withdrew all but 137 pieces. We feel fortunate the Op. 122 survived.
