  • This event has passed.

The Ying Quartet opens the Festival season with a brilliantly-crafted program showcasing the diversity of Russian music, from Prokofiev’s folk-inflected String Quartet No. 2, composed at the outbreak of World War II, to “Souvenir de Florence,” Tchaikovsky’s musical postcard from his favorite vacation spot – with Stravinsky’s early neo-Classical gem along the way. Although composed within a range of fifty-two years, these works seem worlds apart, alluding to the immense historical and artistic upheavals that characterized the early twentieth century.
