WINTER CONCERT SERIES: Each an Experiment

St. Mark’s: Friday, February 21, 8PM

Old First Concerts: Sunday, February 23, 2014, 4PM

  • Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: String Quartet in E-flat major, K.428
  • Henry Cowell: String Quartet No. 3, Mosaic
  • Felix Mendelssohn: String Quartet in F minor, Op. 80

The searching Mozart, the experimenting Cowell and the grieving Mendelssohn make up the winter program.  In emulation of Haydn, Mozart seeks a more complex quartet style while Cowell’s Mosaic is just that—a free-form composition whose movements can be played in any order.  Mendelssohn’s last major work before his death, the F minor quartet, is subtitled “Requiem for Fanny” in memory of his beloved sister.
