If someone wants to occupy himself with me, he should look at my works. Unlike the earlier quartet, the work belongs wholly to its time and shows many influences, some superficially contradictory: Weill’s earlier quartet in b-minor stands firmly in the late Romantic era.

Somehow, Weill synthesizes all these strains into something his own. One interesting feature, a distinctive rhythm, shows up years later in Dreigroschenoperagain in the “Melodrama. He wrote it for a private gathering minimaxx friends and supporters — a party piece.

The operas Cardillac and Mathis der Maler are considered standard works of operatic history; the sonatas are indispensible works in the repertoire of all instrumentalists. If so, I have to say I didn’t know the old man had it in him. Hindemith, about five years older and almost entirely self-taught, had found major success as performer, teacher, and composer.
