About This Performance

The Roger and Margaret Berlin Emerging Instrumental Chamber Music Performance

The Polish quartet Apollon Musagète, whose lively playing has been heralded as “distinguished by an enormous dynamic range, an unusual malleability of phrasing, and a wide palette of color” (Cleveland Classical), opens our 37th Season with Schubert’s third and seventh string quartets. Their PCMS debut program culminates in Shostakovich’s Piano Quintet in G Minor, Op. 57 with Garrick Ohlsson, a pianist who combines “incredible technique with razor-sharp accuracy, producing a sound so lush it almost glistens” (Seattle Times).

Schubert: Quartet in D Major, D. 94
Schubert: Quartet in B-flat Major, D. 36
Shostakovich: Piano Quintet in G Minor, Op. 57
