Part of the PCMS Festival XIV – David Shifrin, Artistic Director
Bask in the glory of music for expanded string ensembles by Mozart and Mendelssohn, two short-lived composers of long-lasting music. Both composers began as child prodigies and neither lived to see their 40th birthday, but left behind the exuberant, genre-forming pieces on this program. Mozart’s C Major Viola Quintet comes from the composer’s maturity and inspired beloved string quintets in the same key by Beethoven and Schubert. Mendelssohn, on the other hand, wrote his high-octane Octet when he was just 16, creating the blueprint for future string octets by composers from Enescu to Shostakovich. Don’t miss this incredible pairing of two great masterpieces for strings in the hands of members of the Dover Quartet and renowned guest artists!
