I've found some of Ferneyhough's music hard to get into, but the String Quartets 2 and 3 grabbed me from the start. Brian Ferneyhough is one of the rare, late 20th-century ultramodernist composers to exhibit a sustained interest in the string quartet. Like Elliott Carter, Ferneyhough's quartets seem to mark important milestones in the composer's career. The Sonatas, evidently inspired by Purcell, mark Ferneyhough's early compositional efforts. Laid alongside the later quartets I can't help but hear these as juvenilia. Well, extremely accomplished juvenilia.
