Chamber Music

Mendelssohn – String Quartet No. 3 in D Major, Op. 44, No. 1
Schumann – String Quartet No. 1 in A Minor, Op. 41, No.1

A program of pure musical poetry, the Sypert Salon Series highlights two compositions beloved for their inventiveness and heart. Mendelssohn described his String Quartet Op. 44 to be among his favorite works, believing that it would be cherished for its “unusual passion.” Turns out, he was right. The program concludes with Schumann’s String Quartet No. 1. Influenced by the late quartets of Beethoven, as well as the work of Haydn and Mozart, Schumann’s work holds its own by eschewing the musical clichés of the time and embodying the composer’s own youthful exuberance and gift for intense, poetic expression.

This performance is part of the Sypert Salon chamber music series.

Sponsored by a generous gift from Drs. George Sypert & Joy Arpin.
