Description

Gabriel Fauré's only string quartet which was composed in 1923-24 is the composer's final work and was written at the suggestion of his publisher Jacques Durand. Until then, Fauré had always put off writing a string quartet, evidently because of Beethoven's imposing shadow.

When Fauré composed the quartet he was already extremely ill. He added dynamics and slurs only in some parts of the exposition of the first movement and then asked his former pupil Jean Roger- Ducasse to complete the work. Roger- Ducasse's additions were however very extensive; he even altered and supplemented some of Fauré's own markings in the exposition.
