MOZART String Quartet in B flat major K458 The Hunt
SCHUBERT String Quartet in D minor D810 Death and the Maiden

No interval

The Alberni Quartet makes their last Residency appearance by giving a recital of two works that will be familiar with devotees of the string quartet repertoire. Commonly known as The Hunt, Mozart’s K458 quartet was composed in 1784. Its popularity is reflected in its use in films such as The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Thirty years later Schubert penned his quartet Death and the Maiden. He was aware at the time that he was dying, and this knowledge gave rise to the second movement’s slow, ponderous and unforgettable theme.
