George W. Marshall-Hall. String Quartett in C (ca. 1895) [from the estate of Johann S. Kruse]

Marshall-Hall was the first Professor of the Conservatorium, from 1891 until he was hounded from the position in 1900 over some allegedly “immoral” poems. While he was born in London and died in Melbourne, the dedicatee of this quartet followed the reverse path. Johann Secundus Kruse was born in Melbourne in 1859, but went to Berlin in 1875 to study with Joseph Joachim, later becoming a member of the legendary Joachim Quartet. Marshall-Hall was inspired to write this quartet after one of Kruse’s return visits to Melbourne.
