Electric Fetus

Born out of a great orchestral tradition, the Streichquartett der Staatskapelle Berlin began it's life in 2017, on the judicious advice of Daniel Barenboim. Since then the four string section leaders of the famed Staatskapelle Berlin have been performing on many of the world's most famous stages. Building on it's familiarity with the world of opera, the quartet's first album highlights three operatic heavyweights. Verdi's string quartet, his only surviving chamber music work, was composed in 1873 while the composer was at the height of his creative powers. Although written in a matter of weeks, it is a piece replete with beautiful melodies and idiomatic writing. Composed two years earlier, Tchaikovsky's first string quartet harks back to Schubert and Beethoven and embraces their ideals of beauty and perfect form. Taking it's inspiration from the chrysanthemum flowers associated with Italian funeral ceremonies, Puccini's Crisantemi, dedicated to the memory of Amadeo I of Spain, completes the trio of works.
