Event Description

Experience a virtuosic collection of distinctive and disparate works that are testaments to each composer’s evolving style. Traditionally avant-garde composer Krzysztof Penderecki dreams up a lush sound world of Neoclassical melody with his String Trio, but still maintains his signature edge via rebellious techniques and a ferocious intro from the viola. Then, hear the infinite range of Franck’s Piano Quintet, an emotionally charged masterpiece inspired by an illicit love affair.
