Although Maurice Ravel, in his string quartet, explicitly refers to the quartet written ten years earlier by his colleague Claude Debussy, he opts to follows his own new path and arrives at a distinctively Ravelian tone: colorful, refined, and saturated with that flair of the artificial that also characterized his beloved porcelain and glass artworks, ornamental shrubs, and bonsai trees. At the same time, the quartet is meticulously constructed and so rich in ingenious details that it offers room for discovery even after repeated listening. Over twenty years Ravel's senior, Fernand de La Tombelle wrote in a Romantic style against which the better-known composer's work stands in sharp relief.
