String Quartet No.2 in A 2nd movement Borodin Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
In 1871, the first professional string quartet in Russia was formed. This inspired Borodin to write two works of this genre, of which his second is by far the better-known. It is particularly famous for its 3rd movement, an exotic, ravishing Nocturne. However the other movements are all good listening. This 2nd movement, a scherzo, continues the dialogue between the cello and the first violin, and includes an elusive, brief but alluring and memorable melody. This tune was purloined later by the pop music trade, and made into a song called "Bangles, baubles and Beads".
