From My Life - String Quartet No. 1 in E Minor by : Bedrich Smetana : Milan Pospisil
When Smetana completed his Quartet in E minor in dark and dismal colors in 1876; he had already been completely deaf for two years. Which musician is not familiar with the fateful passage in the fourth movement; in which Smetana symbolizes the beginning of his illness with a violin note in an extremely high position? The previous movements tell of happier times in his life; an extensive extract from a letter about this is cited in the preface to our edition. Smetana; who at the time received a ridiculously small fee from his publisher; could not forsee that this work would later be considered one of the most famous string quartets of all time.
