Despite it's title, Tchaikovsky's Souvenir de Florence, composed in 1890, owes more to the Russian tradition than to the Italian school. Full of strong contrasts, very intense, and extremely demanding for the performers, it is one of the cornerstones of the string sextet repertoire. Nine years later, with a vigor rivalling that of Tchaikovsky's work, Schoenberg composed another masterpiece of the genre, Verklärte Nacht. This dark and feverish musical tableau, inspired by Robert Dehmel's poem of the same name, takes Romantic expression to it's apogee. The Oistrakh Quartet, featuring four of today's most outstanding Russian musicians, is perfectly at home in these two great works, recorded with the violist Daniel Austrich and the cellist Alexander Buzlov.
