This “marvelous ensemble” (New York Times) is joined by Bravo! Vail’s Artistic Director Anne-Marie McDermott 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.
