Hans Krása’s early string quartet is a virtuoso work with changing moods, tone qualities, tempos and rhythms, but it still forms an organic whole. In 1944, Krása composed a passacaglia and fugue for violin, viola and cello with echoes of early Arnold Schönberg and Gustav Mahler. Tchaikovsky also had role models for this String Quartet No. 2 in F major, in particular Mozart and Beethoven.
