String Quartet No. 2 (1925) — Pavel Haas

I very much like this string quartet. Pavel Haas (1899-1944) died in a Nazi concentration camp.

Five Movements for String Quartet Op5 – Anton Webern

Anton Webern (1883-1945) I’ve previously mentioned that I like the conversational sound of string quartets…This one breaks the mold. This is like a conversation with myself, possibly in the deep woods knowing I and everyone else is ultimately alone in nature. (Webern specifically talked about the “nature” aspect.) Webern is fascinating.
