About This Performance

The first of three programs this season from classical music’s “life-giving spring” (New York Times) spotlights Schubert’s beloved Ave Maria alongside its more rarely performed companion songs from this German setting of Sir Walter Scott’s Lady of the Lake. Literary allusions continue with Janáček’s bristling, Tolstoy-inspired String Quartet No. 1, Kreutzer Sonata. The performance concludes with Schumann’s A Minor String Quartet, composed in the spring of his incredible “chamber music year.”
