2nd Movement: Un Poco Adagio - Nielsen*, Beethoven*, Finlandia Quartet - The Finlandia Quartet (Vinyl, LP)
The second movement "chant of death" and its variations in particular seem odd, the orchestra turning things more than ever into a literal funeral march. Needless to say, the big orchestral treatment takes away much of the quartet's transparency as well, replacing it with more body than we might want in so otherwise intimate a work.
