This long-awaited conclusion of the string quartet series is finally here. Vol. 3 brings together the three masterpieces constituting Herzogenberg's Op. 42 and showing him at the height of his compositional powers. Throughout his life Herzogenberg was an ardent admirer of Brahms but had a difficult time receiving proper recognition while living in the shadow of this composer ten years his senior. Nevertheless, his string quartets attest to an individual treatment of this demanding genre and hold their own against Brahms's string quartets as independent compositions very much equal to them.
