About this concert
‘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.
Melbourne Recital Centre is committed to the safety of our artists, staff and patrons. As we reopen, a range of public health, hygiene and physical distancing measures will be in place. Click here to learn more.
