Description

There are few works in all of music which command the awe and affection of Schubert’s Cello Quintet. Written at a feverish pace as the 31-year-old composer neared death, the quintet’s mesmerizing transcendence has made it an essential listening ritual for music lovers. Inspired by Schubert’s immortal creation, Bruce Adolphe offers a deeply-felt cello quintet, preceded by the first of six landmark string quintets by Mozart.

Join us for a pre-concert chat with Bruce Adolphe at 4:00 PM in the Rose Studio. Free for ticket holders.
