Jonathan James: Discovering Music Lecture
Exploring Schubert’s last string quartet ahead of the Doric String Quartet recital

His last quartet is filled with the tension, harmonic invention and eloquence we associate with this final period. In this lecture Jonathan James will explore this stunning work and put it in the context of his late style.
