WEBERN Langsamer Satz (Slow Movement) for String Quartet
BEETHOVEN String Quartet in F Minor, Op. 95, “Serioso”
BRITTEN String Quartet No. 1 in D Major, Op. 25
The Dover Quartet performs three works: Beethoven’s “Serioso” Quartet, which was given its nickname by Beethoven himself; Britten’s String Quartet No. 1, written toward the end of the composer’s years-long stay in America; and Webern’s heartfelt Langsamer Satz (Slow Movement), inspired by a romantic hike Webern took in Lower Austria with his future wife.
