The chamber music of Sir John Blackwood McEwen is most likely an unknown quantity for the vast majority of listeners. In fact the entire corpus of this underestimated composer is probably unexplored territory for all but the most persistent of British Music enthusiasts. To be fair some people will be aware of the odd piano piece or maybe one of the tone poems. It is perhaps the string quartets that best allow us to see the achievement of McEwen. He wrote nineteen examples of this form. The first was composed in 1893 and the last in the year before his death.
