We happily welcome the Jupiter String Quartet back to the Festival, joining the Ying Quartet for this double-feature. The opening viola quintet is Mozart’s transcription of an earlier Serenade for winds; the string arrangement brings rich depth to this introspective work. Next, we’ll hear the sextet which opens Strauss’s final opera, Capriccio, frequently performed as a standalone concert work. Finally, no double-quartet program would be complete without young Mendelssohn’s Octet, allowing each performer to relish exuberant musical conversation and virtuosic counterpoint.
