Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Quintet for strings in C minor, K.406
Verklärte Nacht (Transfigured Night) for string sextet, Opus 4
Sextet for strings in B flat major, Opus 18
Joining David Finckel, CMS co-artistic director, for this program of Viennese string sextets are violinists Sean Lee and Alexander Sitkovetsky, violists Matthew Lipman and Richard O’Neill, and cellist Keith Robinson.
For centuries, Vienna stood as the cultural epicentre of Europe, a rich melting pot of music, art, and literature; a city that always cherished tradition while pressing toward the artistic future. This program traces the evolution of musical expression in the “city of dreams” through music by three of its greatest voices.
