classical music lives here
I think of harmony the way modern listeners think of a beat: it can say something all by itself. And where a beat can get you dancing, a string quartet can get you feeling. This piece, conceived as a wedding processional, shines with grace and bittersweet beauty. The strings enter one by one, like flower girls. The bride is a melody, flowing down the aisle from the high E string to the cadence that will seal her vows. If you don’t know what this means, don’t worry. Your heart will understand.
