Last chord: Artemis quartet mourn late violistmain
The German quartet have released a session video of their forthcoming Brahms recording in memory of their viola player Friedemann Weigle, who died in July of a depressive condition.
The video is acutely sombre, utterly beautiful. The recording is released next week on Erato.
The Artemis have raised a substantial amount of money to support research into depressive illness.
