Quartz: Schubert – Quartettsatz and Rosamunde
7 February @ 18:00 - 19:00$29 – $40
‘Quartettsatz’, Schubert’s single movement for string quartet exists as the only completed part of his intended full work. It is often performed as a prelude to something larger but holds its own candle as a short spurt of both simmering fury and unrestrained joy. The string quartet ‘Rosamunde’ emerged three years later amid some of Schubert’s monumental compositions, during a state of physical and mental unrest. The little brother of such late greats as ‘Death & the Maiden’, this string quartet cements its feet with poignance and melancholy, undulating tension and melodies that make the heart soar.
