About This Performance

Sphinx Competition laureates, they present a program featuring Felix Mendelssohn’s famed octet and three works new to PCMS: Kenji Bunch’s Octet (based on Whitman’s poem Election Day, November, 1884); Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson’s Quartet No. 1 (based on the African American spiritual Calvary); and Fanny Mendelssohn’s only work in the genre, inspired by the quartets of Beethoven.
