Great Quintets

Saturday, April 15, 7:30 PM

The final concert of the 2022-2023 Season at Drew University, a sublime and masterful duo by Mozart opens a program celebrating the art of the string quintet, a genre virtually invented by the viola-playing Mozart which allows for the addition of a second viola to the hallowed ensemble of the string quartet. Mozart's six quintets set the standard for later masters to emulate, as you will hear in Dvořák's exuberant "American" quintet, composed in Spillville, Iowa.

Mozart Duo No. 2 in B-flat major for Violin and Viola, K. 424 (1783)
Mozart Quintet in G minor for Two Violins, Two Violas, and Cello, K. 516 (1787)
Dvořák Quintet in E-flat major for Two Violins, Two Violas, and Cello, Op. 97, “American” (1893)

Ani Kavafian, Alexander Sitkovetsky, violin • Molly Carr, Steven Tenenbom, viola • David Finckel, cello


PLUS: Be there when we announce plans for the 2023-2024 Season at the concert!
