The Viennese composer Karl Weigl, pupil of Zemlinsky, lifelong friend of Schonberg and associate of Mahler has remained a footnote in the annals of twentieth century music - until now. These two string quartets reveal a composer in tune with his times and at ease with his past. The first quartet is a revelation with the shadow of Mahler very much to the fore.
