Program

FARRENC: Nonet in E-flat Major, Op. 38

MENDELSSOHN: Octet in E-Flat Major, Op. 20

The muse bestowed many kisses on Mendelssohn in his short life, but surely none sparked so brightly as the one that spurred the sixteen-year-old prodigy toward his effervescent Octet for Strings. For the pianist and composer Louise Farrenc, one inspired work of chamber music for winds and strings vaulted her, against all odds, to the top of French society.

MAHLER (arr. Schoenberg): Das Lied von der Erde

The Song of the Earth, Mahler’s awe-inspiring setting of ancient Chinese poetry for voices and orchestra, fulfilled this yearning composer’s grandiose dream for an all-encompassing union of songs and symphonies. A streamlined orchestration by Schoenberg cuts to the core of this epic song cycle.
