Event Details

Macmillan’s beautiful string quartet, composed in Germany under the approaching sinister shadow of World War I, and completed during his time as prisoner of war, shows remarkable affinity to Brahms’s chamber music. Webern’s highly expressive and emotionally charged Langsamer Satz (Slow Movement), composed a decade earlier, is harmonically also still firmly rooted in the tonal system that defined the previous two centuries in music history. Prolific and versatile, Korngold wraps up this programme.
