Mozart and Mendelssohn
- Schumann Quartet
The Schumann Quartet embraces the notion that uncertainty, life’s only certainty, supplies the ground on which every memorable performance stands.
The attitude is open to the excitement and spontaneity of music made in the moment: ‘we really want to take things to extremes’, observes one of the quartet’s three Schumann brothers.
