Mendelssohn in the Morning
Thursday, July 13, 2017 – 10:30am
Dunbar Ryerson United Church
2195 West 45th Avenue, Vancouver
Our 2017 festival kicks off with inspiring music in beautiful spaces. The two morning performances at Ryerson United Church and Christ Church Cathedral will feature the Attacca Quartet in Mendelssohn’s youthful and passionately romantic work, his String Quartet No.2. Having just received glowing reviews in New York and Washington for their interpretation of Mendelssohn, the Attacca are enjoying a quickly growing career. The morning concerts will also include a collaboration with violinist Benjamin Bowman, concertmaster of the American Ballet Theatre in New York, and pianist Jamie Parker in a performance of Beethoven’s exquisite Sonata No. 5, or “Spring” as it was later called.
Beethoven - Sonata No. 5 in F major for Violin and Piano
Mendelssohn - String Quartet No. 2 in A Minor, Opus 13
With the Attacca Quartet, Benjamin Bowman, violin; Barry Shiffman, viola; Jamie Parker, piano
