Mendelssohn and Shostakovich


Sunday, May 15, 2022

3:00 pm First Unitarian Church  

SHOSTAKOVICH: String Quartet No. 3 in F Major, Op 73
MENDELSSOHN: String Quintet No. 1 in A Major, Op 18


Mendelssohn was only 17 when he wrote this quintet, but the creativity and effortless technique on display would make this uplifting music an accomplishment at any age. Some of Shostakovich’s best music can be found in his string quartets. While these composers had vastly different styles, the two works here are connected through the clear echoes of Beethoven’s influence.
