Quatuor Ebène

Zankel Hall
Quartets by two child prodigies grown up—Mozart and Mendelssohn—are featured. Mozart’s E-flat–Major Quartet, one of six dedicated to Haydn, is a masterful mix of the contemplative and boisterous. Mendelssohn took one of his youthful love songs and wove it into the fabric of his impassioned A-Minor Quartet. In a striking contrast, Bartók’s Fourth String Quartet is a visceral study in virtuosity and eerie night music.
