The Danish String Quartet’s Grammy-nominated Prism project links Bach fugues, late Beethoven quartets, and works by modern masters. In volume two of the series, Bach’s Fugue in B-flat minor from the Well-Tempered Clavier (in the arrangement by Viennese composer Emanuel Aloys Förster) is brought together with Beethoven’s String Quartet, Op. 130, and Alfred Schnittke’s String Quartet No. 3. As the quartet explains, “A beam of music is split through Beethoven’s prism. The important thing to us is that these connections be experienced widely. We hope the listener will join us in the wonder of these beams of music that travel all the way from Bach through Beethoven to our own times.”
