Presented by Instrumental Society of Calgary.

These two rarely heard quartets offer a glimpse into the personal crises of their respective composers. Sibelius, struggling with his alcoholism and cancer scare, inscribed the words “Voce intimae” in a friend’s copy of this score. Janacek composed this quartet, originally entitled “Love Letters”, while mired in a lengthy and one-sided obsession with a married woman 38 years his junior to whom he wrote hundreds of love letters.
