GP Large Room

March 3 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Violinists Emily Glover and Karen Strittmatter Galvin, violist Amy Mason, and cellist Elizabeth Beilman will perform two string quartets. First up will be Franz Joseph Haydn’s Quartet, The Rider, op. 74 no. 3, followed by Felix Mendelssohn’s Quartet No. 5, op. 44 no. 3. The Haydn quartet, written when he was 60, represents the culmination of years of the composer’s experimenting with classical form and style, in which all four performers take an equally active role in the musical “conversation” and that infuses its finale with a “riding,” galloping romp. The Mendelssohn quartet originates from 1838 when the youthful composer was on his honeymoon. It inhabits an expansive, emotional landscape and builds on the stylistic legacy of Haydn’s quartets.

Individual tickets are $25 and may be purchased at the door on a space-available basis.
