Jan. 13, 2019: Keeping it in the Family: Musical inheritance is our theme. We open with a J. S. Bach fugue, as arranged by W. A. Mozart. We progress to a Divertimento by Leopold Mozart, Wolfgang’s father, then feature guest artist, traverso player Alison Melville in the Quartet # 1 for flute and strings, by Bach’s son, Johann Christian. The programme is anchored by W.A. Mozart’s masterful Quartet in F, K. 590.
May 5, 2019: Alpha and Omega: We span the arc of string quartet history from Haydn’s first exploratory essay to Beethoven’s last utterance in the form, with a word from Mozart in between. Our concert opens with Haydn’s rarely-heard Op. 0, and closes with Beethoven’s Op. 135. Mozart’s Quartet, K. 387, the first of his quartets dedicated to Haydn, holds a metaphorical hand out to each, tying past and future together.
Tickets: $25, seniors $20, students $10
