The later years of the Romantic period witnessed the emergence of a drastically new approach towards composition. Webern’s expressive Langsamer Satz pushes the boundaries of romanticism, while Berg’s String Quartet abandons tonality for a new language of emotion. Songs by Charles Ives and Bela Bartók incorporate folk music, while Elgar’s passionate quintet revels in a nostalgic and melancholy realm.
- Webern Langsamer Satz for String Quartet (1905)
- Berg Quartet for Strings, Op. 3 (1910)
- Bartók & Ives Selected Songs (1887-1929)
- Elgar Quintet in A minor for Piano, Two Violins, Viola, and Cello, Op. 84 (1918-19)
