As a genre, the string quartet, or quartet in general, belongs to a classical age and to a definite geographical Austro-Germanic area, not simply as a result of the contributions made by the composers in this region, but also because of a kind of unique conception philosophy that they succeeded in giving to the idea of four instruments. It is no coincidence that Goethe decribed the Quartet as a "conversation between four intelligent people. In terms of both structure and concept it belongs to central Europe and the musical trends that were born here and developed over the years. When "folk" elements from outside this area, especially if from Easten countries come into contact with this form there il always an attempt to preserve their own structure by constructing variegations typical of the geographical areas they originate from. Russian and Czech music are the perfect example of this. In Russia, expecially in the latter half of the nineteenth century the confrontation between western and "autochthonous" cultures gave rise to a twin style; one side of which was sustained by P.I.Tchaikovsky and the other by the so-called Group of Five. Even if Tchaikovsky is supposed to have sustained the West while Mussorgsky, Rimsky Korsakov, Cui, Borodin and Balakirev defended the Holy Mother, Russia, the language of both factions, inevitably contains elements of the other on account of birth and schooling. A. Borodin's Second Quartet composed in 1881 is a good example.
