Comment

There isn’t much “sunny” mood here, except the tender Adagio and a few brief spots in the first movement. If you are looking for truly “sunny” quartets try the Op.33 No.5 or the Op.54 No.1.

Among the Fugue movements in the Opus 20 (three out of six quartets in this set end with a fugue) this is perhaps the easiest one (!).
