Sarasa Ensemble: Viola, Viola! Mozart & Brahms Viola Quintets
January 17, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Many classical composers seemed to prefer playing the viola in their chamber music gatherings—from Bach to Beethoven to Mozart to Schubert to Mendelssohn to Dvorak to Hindemith.
The program indulges in the great instrumental combination of two violins, two violas and cello, highlighting the beauty of the middle voice, with Mozart’s String Quintet No. 4 in G minor, K. 516 and Brahms’ String Quintet No. 2 in G Major, Op. 111.
Performers are Rodolfo Richter, Susannah Foster, violins; Jenny Stirling, Jason Fisher, violas; and Timothy Merton, cello.
