Johannes Brahms: Scherzo from the ‘F.A.E.’ Sonata
Pēteris Vasks: String Quartet No.4
Franz Schubert: Death and the Maiden
One of the very greatest, most gripping works in the repertoire, Schubert’s Death and the Maiden quartet is a headlong gallop into darkness. Any companion works on a programme need to stand up and be counted, and Vasks’ wonderful Fourth is worthy of the great string quartet tradition. With Brahms’ rousing homage to Beethoven as an opener, this is an evening of high drama.
Duration: 2:30 with interval
