Ravel’s quartet from 1903 was dedicated to Fauré, yet the older master refused to write his own, as he admitted that “this is a genre which Beethoven in particular made famous, and causes all those who are not Beethoven to be terrified of it”. Before his death in 1924, he completed this one and only quartet, a masterly tableau of autumnal colours and intricate melodic lines.
