Second music video of the album "Fragment"

15Aug


Even today, it is not known why Schubert put aside his work on the following andante movement after just 40 bars. Not for nothing are these years of Schubert’s life, plagued as they are by blind alleys and new directions, regularly described in the literature as his “crisis years”.

The Schumann Quartet has integrated this fragment as a central element in its recording, even naming the album after it. The way the solitary first violin suddenly falls silent creates a vacant space into which, after a short moment of surprise, the first movement of the “Rosamunde” quartet can nestle with its gently swaying opening, agreeably dissipating any brief confusion the listener may have felt.
