MENDELSSOHN String Quartet No. 2 in A minor, Op. 13
SCHUMANN Piano Quintet in E-flat major, Op. 44

This “marvelous ensemble” (New York Times) is joined by Bravo! Vail’s artistic director for Schumann’s groundbreaking piano quintet, which combined the forces of piano with string quartet for the first time, pioneering a new genre of chamber music “suspended between private and public spheres.” Mendelssohn’s early work pays homage to Beethoven’s own groundbreaking late string quartets.

Beinecke Chair); Principal Viola Cynthia Phelps (The Mr. and Mrs. Frederick P. Rose Chair); and Principal Cello Carter Brey (The Fan Fox and Leslie R. Samuels Chair).
