WorksString Quartet no.2 'Intimate Letters'
String Quartet no.15 in G major, D887
The Taurus Quartet’s debut CD project is entitled Horizon funèbre and consists of two works dealing with the theme of death by Janáček and Schubert on two CDs. These are the final string quartets by both composers, Schubert’s String Quartet no.15 in G major and Janáček’s String Quartet no.2 ‘Intimate Letters’: two musical testaments, written shortly before the composers’ respective deaths. The two works on their next CD – Schubert’s String Quartet no.14 ‘Der Tod und das Mädchen’ and Janáček’s String Quartet no.1 ‘Kreutzer Sonate’ – will depict the cruelty of death: death as an active agent, as seen through passion, jealousy and murder. The covers of both CDs, when placed alongside, will form a reproduction in full of ‘Wheat field with crows’: Vincent van Gogh’s own Horizon funèbre.
