composed by Loewe

Carl Loewe (1796-1869) composed four string quartets, i.e. three ones Op.24 and Op.26. Whereas Op.24 are for family use, Op.26 is a great work for concert, which should be considered as an important string quartet in the period. Please listen the beautiful performance by Hallensia Quartet (http://ml.naxos.jp/album/M56841).
It consists of the following four movements,
I. Allegro serioso,
II. Andante Phrygice,
III. Moderato, mysterioso,
IV. Allegro con sprito.

The movement II is based on a chorale, "Mitten wir im Leben sind mit dem Tod umfangen".

I. Allegro serioso
