About This Performance

This concert is supported in part by Dr. Jeffrey L. Hough

Experience the “tremendous, completely spellbinding” (New York Classical Review) Belcea Quartet and the “flawless virtuosity” (Seen and Heard International) of Quatuor Ébène in this unique afternoon uniting two of Europe’s premier string quartets.

Mendelssohn: String Octet in E-flat Major, Op. 20
Enescu: String Octet in C Major, Op. 7
