Description

The string quartet medium, arguably the spinal column of the chamber music literature, did not exist in Bach’s lifetime. Yet even here, Bach’s legacy is inescapable. His mastery permeates the work of the great innovators of the modern string quartet: Joseph Haydn, Ludwig van Beethoven, and Dmitry Shostakovich.

PROGRAM
Johann Sebastian BACH (1685–1750): Fugue in E-flat Major, BWV 876;
Fugue in d minor, BWV 877 (arr. string quartet, Mozart)

Dmitry SHOSTAKOVICH (1906–1975): Piano Quintet in g minor, op. 57 (1940)
