The season’s first Friday evening opens with Saint-Saëns’s luminous postcard from the Mediterranean coast, where he composed his Fantaisie at the young age of seventy. Kronos Quartet alumnus Jeffrey Zeigler interprets the work of Gambian-American composer Foday Musa Suso, who drew inspiration from the achievements of nineteenth-century botanist and inventor, George Washington Carver, for his 2018 work, Salumba. The second half takes a dramatic turn with Dvořák’s mature trio.
