Am Neujahrstage (On New Years Day), op. 79 no. 2 (string quartet)


Title: Am Neujahrstage (On New Years Day) op. 79 no. 2

Composer: Felix Mendelssohn, arr. David Gable

Instrumentation: Violin 1; Violin 2; Viola; Cello

Printout: 4 pages

Note: This music is from Mendelssohn’s setting of verses 1 and 2 of Psalm 90 (Lord, you are our refuge). Beginning in a reflective d minor, ending in a warm D Major, and full of heartbeat-like pulsing rhythms and rich suspensions, it is ideal music for reflective preludes, and despite its title is quite suitable at any time of the year.
