In the tradition of the later Beethoven quartets... This slow movement is darkly romantic while being understated. The musical lines are long and seemly free-flowing while being tied together with a thematic kernel which introduces the movement. It ends with something of a question... perhaps the “unanswered question” of life itself. Actually with its many double-stops it sounds quite like a string quartet.
– W. Jay Sydeman
