Two Exquisite, Rare String Quartets
Press acclaim for this youthful ensemble is copious and universally appreciative. They come to us via the Essex Winter Series, one of our region’s effective means of discovering what intriguing new performers are up to. Normally, you’d have to travel far afield to hear the tuneful E-flat String Quartet by Felix Mendelssohn’s brilliant sister, Fanny, but we shall have that uncommon pleasure here in Stonington. The Attacca Quartet have counterweighted this melifluous, two-movement work with Leos Janácek’s soul-searching Second Quartet. Perhaps they will tell us why it bears the unusual title, “Intimate Letters”....? Please join us for music making on a high and most enjoyable level!
The La Grua Center’s new platform stage makes performers wonderfully visible and audible.
Monthly Music Matters concerts are free of charge, with a suggested $10 donation.
