The Jupiter String Quartet returns to present a program spanning a century and a half and spread across Europe – opening with another exquisite work by precocious young Mendelssohn, and concluding with Dvořák’s late quartet, composed just after returning to Europe from his years in America. In the middle, it’s a concise and motivically dense work from Shostakovich, one of the twentieth-century titans of the string quartet genre.
