Belcea Quartet - Berg, Webern & Schonberg - The Sunday Times

Four works by the New Viennese triumvirate, three of them highly charged paeans to love. Webern’s Langsamer Satz expresses burgeoning passion for his wife to be, Berg’s Lyric Suite is his secret love letter to his illicit amour, and Schoenberg’s sextet Verklärte Nacht reflects on love’s forgiving power. The Belcea Quartet, plus Nicolas Bone (violin) and Antonio Meneses (cello), play passionately and precisely.
