Einojuhani Rautavaara's first string quartet (composed in 1952) is from his Neo-Classical early period when he composed only little chamber music. Since then Rautavaara's style has gone through dodecaphony to freer style beginning in the late 1960s and resulted in multi-faceted and versatile chamber music.

    This work would make a great addition to a program of the major composers. It has both player and audience appeal.
