The summer opens with the Escher String Quartet’s Festival début. They begin with the only complete movement of Schubert’s mysteriously unfinished twelfth string quartet before exploring the early work of Arnold Schoenberg. Composed over a decade before the composer’s experiments with twelve tones, Schoenberg’s first Quartet features a densely woven motivic texture, stretching the limits of ‘D Minor’ and tonal expression. For the second half, the quartet joins forces with Alan Chow for Dvořák’s glorious Piano Quintet, setting the stage for several more programs featuring Dvořák’s music this season.
