The “dream-team line-up” (Strings Magazine) of the Ehnes Quartet blends four renowned musicians: Ehnes and Amy Schwartz Moretti, violins, Richard O’Neill, viola, and Edward Arron, cello. (Richard O’Neill has played many times for the Friends, most recently joining the Szymanowski Quartet to play all the Mozart string quintets in early 2018.)
This refined, sensitive and expressive quartet offers us a program of rising passions, from Mozartian elegance to Schubertian lyricism, via the modern dynamism of music by Janáček.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: String Quartet in F major, K590
Leoš Janáček: String Quartet No 1, “Kreutzer Sonata”
Franz Schubert: String Quartet in G major, D887 Opus 161
