Peter Fricker was born in London in 1920.

During World War II English music had been dominated by the pastoral folksong tradition. The new spirit of the immediate postwar years was epitomized by Frickerís music, which owed nothing to folksong, which was predominantly instrumental and densely chromatic, and which displayed an assured grasp of large-scale formal processes and a rigorous intellectual drive.

He gave us three string quartets.

- String quartet no. 1, opus 8 (1947)

It is in one movement, played by the Benthen quartet:

- String quartet no. 2, opus 20 (1953).

There are three movements, given in three separate files:

II. Molto allegro
III. Adagio

The work was played by the Villiers Quartet:

- String quartet no. 3, opus 73 (1976).

It was given by the Chilingirian Quartet:
