Euclid Quartet performing the third movement (Introduzione - Allegro) of Bela Bartok's String Quartet No. 1 Live at Greencastle Summer Music Festival, Greencastle, Indiana on August 9, 2013
Jameson Cooper and Jacob Murphy, violins; Luis Enrique Vargas, viola; Si-Yan Darren Li, cello
Bartok's first quartet outlines an emotional journey from despair to hope, mirroring his own emotions about his unrequited love for violinist Stefi Geyer. This third movement, after an introduction featuring dramatic cello cadenzas, marks his return to life and happiness. It concludes with one of the most triumphant endings in all of the string quartet literature.
