Aparté Records has this month announced the release of the German-based Novus String Quartet‘s new album: Berg Schubert.
Comprising violinists Jaeyoung Kim and Young-Uk Kim, violist Kyuhyun Kim and cellist Woongwhee Moon, the disc features Alban Berg’s Lyric Suite for String Quartet – coupled with Schubert’s Death and the Maiden String Quartet No. 14 in D Minor.
”Both of these works are very heavy and very dark … and both related to death and darkness …” 1st violinist Jaeyoung Kim has told The Violin Channel.
“Our hope is listeners will be able to hear deep inside the composers … to a very personal level …and into their dark emotions and secrets,” he has said.
