Belcea Quartet plays Schubert’s “Death and the Maiden” String Quartet on tonight’s “Evening Concert”

You really mus sit down and listen to the "Death and the Maiden" String Quartet by Schubert. Most multiple-movement works change key to 'ease up' on the musical tension. Schubert doesn't do that in this work. The D Minor never relents except for the passages that shift temporarily to D major key. Those major key portions are then metaphorically like a ray of sunshine through the clouds.
