Looking into Eternity

Schubert’s sublime “The Shepherd on the Rock” stems from the final month of a life tragically cut short. The fifteenth and last string quartet by Shostakovich represents his most intimate musical testimony. In contrast Mozart’s late String Quintet in C is a stroke of life-affirming genius.
