Haydn: String Quartet in D Major, Op. 33, No. 6
Mendelssohn: String Quartet No. 2 in A Minor, Op. 13
Beethoven: String Quartet in A Minor, Op. 132
Quatuor Mosaiques (Erich Höbarth, violin; Andrea Bischof, violin; Anita Mitterer, viola; Christophe Coin, cello)
The string quartet evolved as music-making for accomplished amateurs and professionals in intimate, private settings before it moved to the public arena. The world-renowned Quatuor Mosaïques, the maverick period-instrument quartet from Germany, returns to the Menil Collection, our modern salon setting, with three genre-defining quartets.
“The quartet’s powerful performance of [Beethoven’s] Opus 132 as a whole, the highlight of the evening, was remarkably expressive and nuanced.” — The New York Times
