Arianna String Quartet: Shifting Vistas

Felix Mendelssohn: Quartet in E-flat Major, Op.12
Daniel Schnyder: String Quartet Nr. 4, “Great Places” (2007)
Atar Arad: “Whims,” for String Quartet
Felix Mendelssohn: String Quintet in B-flat Major, Op.87,
with Atar Arad, viola

The Arianna Quartet wraps up their St. Louis season with a program shaped by the captivating innovation of two brilliant young composers.  Daniel Schnyder’s intoxicating, jazz influenced String Quartet Nr.4, “Great Places”, captures snapshots of cities from around the world, and through time, bringing a unique and fresh voice to the world of classical music.  The ebullient sound of Felix Mendelssohn opens and closes the season finale, as the ASQ explores the shimmering beauty of the String Quartet, Op.12, the first string quartet by the 20 year-old genius, and concludes with his profound late work, the String Quintet, Op.87.  The Arianna Quartet will be joined by string quartet luminary, violist, Atar Arad, for what is certain to be one of the concert events of the year in St. Louis.  As an added bonus, the ASQ will also perform Mr. Arad’s elegant set of miniatures, “Whims,” for string quartet.

This performance features a pre-show talk with the Arianna String Quartet. Please arrive 50 minutes early for the pre-show discussion.
