Schumann declared that Felix Mendelssohn was the “Mozart of the 19th century”. In this concert, we celebrate two child prodigies whose work demonstrates true genius.
Mozart’s stunning Quartet for oboe and strings moves from the sublime to the effervescent. Mendelssohn’s famous Octet is for two string quartets combined in a miracle of grace and unbounded youthful enthusiasm. Join us for a concert of some of the greatest chamber music ever written.
