Alberto Ginastera: String Quartet No.1, Op.20
Franz Schubert: String Quartet in D minor, D.810 (Death & the Maiden)
A one-hour concert by the young Venezuelan quartet, formed from the top players in the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra.
Hear them in a concert that starts with Ginastera's String Quartet No.1, a piece that exudes the sounds and rhythms of Argentinean folk music.
This is followed in complete contrast by one of the greatest masterpieces of the chamber music repertoire, Schubert's dark and foreboding String Quartet No.14, D.810 'Death and the Maiden'.
