The first movement for Schubert's String Quartet in G Major, D. 887 - Allegro motto moderato.
Nominated for two 2015 Northwest Regional Emmy® Awards and winning for the Director – Live or Recorded Live category, Transcendence documents Miró Quartet’s recording of Franz Schubert’s final composition for string quartet, String Quartet No. 15 in G major, D. 887. Regarded as one of history’s great works for string quartet, the composition transcended the quartet medium and stands as a testament to Schubert’s significant contributions to classical music.
In 2014, Miró Quartet was commissioned by benefactor and stringed instrument collector David Fulton to immortalize Schubert's demanding and iconic work with director John Forsen and producer/recording engineer Da-Hong Seetoo. Filmed at Benaroya Hall in Seattle using five cameras to capture a show that is as intimate as the music itself, the documentary also includes behind-the-scenes extras and commentary from Miró Quartet, Fulton and Seetoo that add context to the recording of this groundbreaking composition.
