The Jupiter String Quartet return to the Festival and join forces once again with the Ying Quartet for an evening of string music, starting with Dohnányi’s mature sextet, putting a lush coat on a distinctly Brahmsian genre, even in the 1930s. Shostakovich’s and Mendelssohn’s works, on the other hand, display both composers’ youthful voices – each was written before their twentieth birthday, yet both are already bursting with their authors’ unique voices.
