This quartet no. 2 was dedicated to his wife in honor of their 20th anniversary. No wonder many of us find this music no hauntingly romantic. Smetana has long been of interest to me, now I enjoy this quartet as well. He supposedly composed this as his personal response to life's tragedy for him, which declined to deafness and insanity. It was a programmatic movement, from the opening youthful mood to the second (a polka) of youthful dancing, to the largo of first love, to the haunting Finale, a lengthy holding high pitched note, which reminded him of the oncoming deafness. The Cleveland Quartet, featured here on this delicious Telarc recording, play this music with lightness, and gentle commitment. I came to these pieces late in my learning years, and I think, looking back, I probably spent too much time on both Debussy and Ravel. Indeed, their qurtets are interesting, but their dissonance. 7. 1 in E minor "From My Life": III. Largo sostenuto. 8. 1 in E minor "From My Life": IV. Vivace.
String Quartet No. 1 in E minor ("Z mého, zivota," "From My Life"), JB 1:105. 2. 3. blue highlight denotes track pick. 1 ("From My Life", Czech: "Z mého života") in E minor, written in 1876, is a four-movement Romantic chamber composition by Czech composer Bedřich Smetana. After becoming deaf, Smetana moved in 1876 from Prague to Jabkenice. He still hoped that the handicap would not be permanent. In the autumn of that year, he began to compose a new work using four instruments speaking among themselves in something.
