BARTÓK String Quartet No.3 (16’)
SCHUBERT String Quartet No.13, D804 Rosamunde (34’)

Coming live from Music in the Round’s longstanding residency at The Guildhall in Portsmouth, the acclaimed Doric Quartet presents two contrasting, complementary works. The third of Bartók’s string quartets is a pacey tour-de-force: dense, complex and intricately patterned. Schubert’s Quartet No.13 begins with a wistful, lyrical song-like theme that develops from pervading melancholy into an uplifting melody with a gentle, optimistic finale.
