Smetana’s richly varied first string quartet is a magnificent achievement that takes on extra resonance when its autobiographical element is understood. There are representations of the hopes of a young man, the youthful joy of dancing, and wistful recollections of first love. But any sense of contentment is shattered by a single piercing high note that symbolises the disastrous onset of deafness. Truly, a life vividly encapsulated in a single piece of music.
