The Pulitzer-Prize winning string quartet no. 2 (1959) became known for its radically individualistic treatment of the four instruments, which many listeners took as capturing the separateness and individualism of modern life. Each instrument plays in its own tempo and with its own characteristics, seemingly oblivious to its companions.

PROGRAM NOTE String Quartet No. I establishes its almost constantly diversified textures by starting with a solo cello, which is then joined by each of the other instruments, each presenting a different musical character at a different speed. These four different ideas recur in contexts of still other ideas, each with its own rhythmic identity. The ending of the first movement comes when the four main ideas are presented simultaneously and dissolve into a whirling second movement, which is intemrpted by a dramatic statement, then resumes and fades out to a pause.
