Mozart — Selections from The Marriage of Figaro, K. 492
Shostakovich — String Quartet No. 8 in C minor, Op. 110
Mozart’s effervescent music for wind octet opens this varied program that highlights the intensely autobiographical 8th String Quartet of Shostakovich. The Quartet’s first private performance caused the composer to bury his head in his hands and weep.
Due to an unforeseen circumstance, Prior's Call of the Sirens will be rescheduled to a later date.
