About This Performance

The Alexander Schneider Concert

In its annual PCMS concert, the “genuinely exciting” (New York Times) Aizuri Quartet presents a program that explores the idea of community in a multi-faceted way. It features works by four female composers, including Indian American composer Reena Esmail, whose raag-influenced Fantasie layers the voices of the string quartet to create a beautiful, swirling world that invites players and audience into the concert experience.

Esmail: Fantasie (Bihag) from Ragamala
Fe. Mendelssohn: Capriccio from Quartet, Op. 81
Ran: Lyre of Orpheus
Strauss: Sextet from Capriccio, Op. 85
C. Schumann: Die stille Lotosblume from Sechs Lieder, Op. 13, No. 6
Fa. Mendelssohn: Quartet in E-flat Major

Running time: 1 hour and 35 minutes (including intermission)
