GLASS String Quartet No. 3 Mishima
HAYDN String Quartet in C Op.74 No.1
BEETHOVEN String Quartet in E Flat Op. 74 Harp
Philip Glass’ minimalist 3rd string quartet was originally written for the soundtrack to Paul Schrader's film 'Mishima' and the atmospheric movements correspond to different periods in the life of Japanese writer Yukio Mishima.
Beethoven’s Op.74 quartet reveals the composer in his most serene and relaxed mood. It is undoubtedly a masterpiece.
