In this installment of our season-long "A Golden Age of Music" series, Carnegie Hall's Director of Artistic Planning Jeremy Geffen introduces Ravel's exciting, gamelan-influenced String Quartet in F Major. The Takács Quartet performs this work in Zankel Hall on April 14.

The piece—which began as a tribute to Debussy's sole string quartet—was written in response to the earlier domination of the form by German and Austrian composers. Geffen also reveals how close we came to losing this amazing masterpiece and the surprising circumstances from which this threat emanated.
