The Guardian said, “The Belceas still play like a young quartet, seizing the music’s energy, shocking us out of our seats with every fortissimo.” The three works on the program were all premiered in Vienna. Mozart’s F-Major Quartet, his last in the form, was commissioned by the King of Prussia, an amateur cellist and, of course, features a number of cello solos. Brahms’s C-Minor Quartet’s intensity is supported by its rich textures. Berg’s Lyric Suite burns with a white-hot passion, underscoring its tragic tone.
