The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, the nation’s premier repertory company, is committed to creating extraordinary programs that deliver the finest chamber music repertoire and artists. This concert, Reflections, is the second in their 4-concert series at The PAC this season.
Like all composers of the 1820’s, Mendelssohn was awestruck by the powerful profundity of Beethoven’s music; in his early Op. 13 string quartet, he freely borrowed ideas from Beethoven, fusing his own youthful style with the voice of the master. After intermission, experience three diverse composers drawn by a common inspiration: the power of Jewish music.
