St. Lawrence String Quartet by Leonardo Mascaro, Inon Barnatan by Marco Borggreve
Haydn’s quartet is an edgy exploration of asymmetrical phrases, dissonant flashes, and abrupt dynamic shifts, while Beethoven’s final quartet has abundant good humor—particularly a slapstick episode in the Scherzo where the first violin takes flight as other players repeat a churning, comic figure 48 times. Shostakovich’s quintet is also open-hearted with powerful expression and technical brilliance going hand-in-hand. Its piano part is stunning, particularly the giddy whirlwind Scherzo that will showcase the mastery of Inon Barnatan, “one of the most admired pianists of his generation” (The New York Times).
