BSO/BCO String Quintet
Dvořák, Mozart, and Brahms
Dvořák • Terzetto in C major, Op 74
Mozart • Viola Quintet No. 4 in G minor, K. 516
Brahms • String Quintet No. 2 in G major, Op. 111
The program will open with Dvořák’s lyrically rich and rhythmically pungent Terzetto for two violins and viola, followed by two of the greatest string quintets with viola emphasis: the Mozart G minor viola quintet, and the second of Brahms’ viola quintets, with its myriad moods and styles of composition interwoven – from a Viennese waltz, to a wistful theme and variations, and ending with Hungarian-influenced folk music and dance.
