Zelkova Quartet

Another superb concert by a quartet of musicians who are becoming tangibly more accomplished and impressive, each time they are heard.

This evening featured quartets by Beethoven, Bartok and Brahms, the overriding theme being love unrequited and (in Brahm’s case only) fulfilled.  It was interesting to learn that Bartok had an antipathy toward the Viennese.  Kafka too, one discovers on reading Reiner Stach’s biography, was loath to visit the imperial capital.

A fine evening.
