String Quartet No. 4 by Walter Piston is a chamber-music work composed in 1951. Piston’s Fourth Quartet was commissioned by the Coolidge Foundation in celebration of the centennial of Mills College, and is dedicated to Elizabeth Sprague Coolidge. It was premiered on May 18, 1952 by the Hungarian Quartet. It is closely related to Piston’s Fourth Symphony (Pollack 1982, 108).

Piston’s Third Quartet was commissioned by Harvard University and first performed by the Walden Quartet on May 1, 1947. It is dedicated to Diran Alexanian (Pollack 1982, 102).

Performer: Portland String Quartet. The First String Quartet was composed in 1933 and its outer movements have a forward-moving and biting rhythmic vigor reminiscent of Hindemith (the liner notes point the the German emigre was a close personal friend of Piston). As such, it is pleasant but not entirely original, although the galloping rhythms in the compact finale are quite irresistible. But the slow-moving, alternately brooding and elegiac middle adagio, with an anguished fugal climax, is the emotional heart of the composition. Ravel (String Quartet) and Roussel (Serenade) passingly came to mind.

The Portland String Quartet has had an enormous impact locally, regionally and its inception in 1969. Beginning as The Portland Symphony String Quartet (PSSQ), the quartet members became not only principal players in the Portland Symphony Orchestra, they established teaching studios, schoolmusic positions and chamber music concerts serving the greater Portland area and the State of Maine full time. 1.
