The woody textures and delicious blend of stringed instruments have drawn some of the most charmed and perfect creations from composers the world over. Here we sample some of the finest, from the luminous, shimmering prayer of Vaughan Williams’s ‘Tallis Fantasia’ to the chugging warmth and joie de vivre of Dvorák’s ‘Serenade for Strings’. A proper winter warmer.
