Description

Mendelssohn’s String Quartet in A Minor is one of the greatest masterpieces of all time, written when the composer was only 17. It was modeled on Beethoven’s own A minor quartet – to be featured later on the July 31 Concert – as well as on “Frage”, a romantic song by Mendelssohn himself. To round out the program, we will present a selection of songs on themes of longing and loss.
