Now in their twenty-fifth year as an ensemble, the Borromeo String Quartet continues to set the standard for quartet performance and innovation. Their exciting program opens with Mendelssohn’s String Quartet, Op. 13, a tightly constructed and exquisitely heartfelt work which belies the composer’s young age (18) at its time of composition. Ligeti’s first String Quartet, subtitled Métamorphoses Nocturnes, demonstrates its indebtedness to Bartók, and reflects the composer’s early style before he fled Hungary in 1956. For Schumann’s rousing Piano Quintet, the Quartet are joined by Pei-Shan Lee, who will play the same part composed for Clara Schumann but performed by Felix Mendelssohn at the work’s premiere in 1842.
