String Quartet No. 2: Score and Parts
The traditional sonata form is used for the first and third movements. The first is by turns tender, playful, and intensely driving, the third is a whirling scherzo of runs and repeated-note figures, with some lyrical interludes and a slower central section. The middle movement is an elegy for the composer's father and is based on a synagogue melody.
