Cellist Misha Quint performs a program of contrasts. The concert includes J.S. Bach’s Cello Suite No.6, a series of baroque dances referred to by Mstislav Rostropovich as a “symphony for the cello” and originally intended for a 5-stringed instrument. The evening also features the final work written for solo instrument and piano by Beethoven, his Sonata No. 5; Robert Schumann’s imaginative 5 Pieces in a Folk Style that illustrate Goethe’s poetic story-telling and popular romantic songs; and the Adagio written by Clara Schumann’s half-brother, Bargiel.
