Bartók's final string quartet is a curious and powerful work, ranging from playfulness to melancholy. As the music succumbs to the impending end, it transforms into something majestic in its resignation. Schumann's String Quartet No. 3 features a Clara motif, as he wrote it during his first marital crisis, a domestic issue with a modern ring to it. A two-career family, Schumann struggled with the fame of his wife Clara, a renowned pianist of the day. Typical for Schumann, the finale sweeps away all that has gone before in a surge of energy with a grand conclusion.
