The understanding that the members of the Elsa Quartet and Nati demonstrated in this piece produced an interesting performance born from an alchemy made up of looks and smiles exchanged. Perfectly in harmony both in the lyrical pages of the second movement, Andante mesto, and in the Allegro con fuoco, so full of character and impetus. The Elsa Quartet gradually constituted itself as a single voice to which Nati was a counterpoint exalting the various timbres of his instrument according to the paths that the complex score indicates.
