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.

Featured Performers:
Anthony Bracewell, violin
Kirsten Marshall, violin
Victoria Miskolczy, viola
Brandon Gianetto, viola
Elizabeth Simkin, cello
