|Webern||Six Bagatelles Op. 9|
|Schubert||String Quartet No. 15 in G, D.887|
In the second edition of the hugely popular Rush-hour Lates series, the Brodsky Quartet perform Schubert’s last three quartets and his quintet, lovingly set up with musical preludes.
Webern’s exquisite, pared-down bagatelles last under four minutes but achieve a kaleidoscope of emotion and style with a brevity that has never been matched. These unique miniatures preface Schubert’s thrilling fifteenth quartet, epic in scope, whose sombre energy and profound pathos command the stage.
