Quartz: Dvořák & Mendelssohn
16 December 2022 @ 18:00 - 19:00$37
Beginning with Dvořák’s America, a work of great beauty that is rarely performed. The added depth and sonority of a second viola will undoubtedly heighten the performance of this piece, adding a unique richness.
Quartz carries through to Mendelssohn’s Four Pieces for String Quartet, a collection of individual movements written throughout his life, each showcasing compositional mastery and lightness of touch. The four movements have contrasting moods and evocations yet tie together seamlessly into a work revealing Mendelssohn’s premier qualities: passion, tenderness and civilised wit.
