Endings and Beginnings
Tickets: $25 General, $5 under 18
With guest pianist Stephen Prutsman
A juxtaposition of one of Shostakovich's darkest string quartets, intended to be his final work and personal musical epitaph, and Schumann's heroic piano quintet, the first major work of a genre which would become a fixture of the chamber music repertoire.
Program: Shostakovich String Quartet No. 8 and Schumann Piano Quintet
