Interestingly, Smetana and Sibelius, both renowned for their skillful dealing with symphonic forces, turned to the intimacy of the string quartet form at specific points of crisis in their lives. Smetana s first quartet, subtitled From my life, musically chronicles his youth, loves and vocation, culminating with the onset of his deafness. The turbulent second quartet serves as a sequel. The musical language is adventurous and unusual, speaking movingly of the composer s loss of his hearing. Voces intimae is an intense precursor to Sibelius tormented fourth symphony, written at a time of profound depression. On this CD, BBC Music Magazine award winners the Dante Quartet are featured in their third recording for Hyperion.
