Each of the works on this program were written following the death of its respective composer’s mother. Their characters, however, could not be more different. While Brahms moves from one extreme to another in his magisterial fast movements to his plaintive slow movement, Bartók begins each of this final, heart-wrenching quartet’s movements with the word Mesto, or “Sadly.” One of Dvořák least-known masterworks rounds out the program with a piece that runs the gamut of human emotion: dark throughout, at times tragic, playful, and poignant, but above all, stunningly beautiful.
