About This Performance

In its annual appearances with the Society, the Orion Quartet continues to display masterful technique and an ensemble tone that is “warm, variable, and beautiful” (Strings Magazine). For this collaborative performance, the Orion is joined by two PCMS favorites in Kim Kashkashian and Marcy Rosen for Dvořák’s endearingly melodic Sextet.

Haydn: Quartet in E-flat Major, Op. 33, No. 2, Joke
Mozart: Quartet in C Major, K. 465, Dissonance
Dvořák: String Sextet in A Major, Op. 48

This concert is supported by Robert E. Mortensen.
