This fascinating program pairs Schubert’s massive, masterful string quartet with a new tribute work — its doppelgänger – filled with lush harmonies and surreal effects, and closes with the quartet’s own arrangement of Schubert’s eerily emotional song written in the final year of his all-too-brief life.
