This is a slow and sad, but expressive string quartet in the key of D minor. It starts out with a simple back and forth rocking motion accompanying a single melody. The complexity then grows as the different instruments take on more complicated and opposing melodies. The overall feel is one of sadness, longing, and mourning. Great piece for a drama, documentary, sad photo montage, or other darker and sadder subject matter.
Instruments: Violins, Viola, Cello
