About This Performance

Works of Britten and Schubert shine with equal intensity and tenderness in this tour program from “the classical world’s most coveted retreat” (The New Yorker). Schubert’s Quartet, D. 87, written when he was only 16 years old, provides a youthful counterpoint to Britten’s Quartet No. 3, written within the final year of his life. Schubert’s lyrical Auf dem Strom for tenor, horn, and piano offers a personal narrative of loss and memory that complements Britten’s Canticle—a public commemoration of the 1940 London raids.

Miles Mykkanen, tenor; Radovan Vlatković, horn; YooJin Jang & Tessa Lark, violin; Jonathan Chu, viola; Christoph Richter, cello; Lydia Brown, piano

Britten: Canticle III: Still Falls the Rain
Schubert: String Quartet in E-flat Major, D. 87
