Cancelled: Quartetto di Cremona

Friday, April 23, 2021 7:30 PM Weill Recital Hall
Quartetto di Cremona by Nikolaj Lund
Hear how great operatic composers could also write beautiful string quartets. Puccini’s emotionally powerful Crisantemi (Chrysanthemums) was conceived as an elegy for a nobleman and repurposed for his opera Manon Lescaut. Verdi claimed he wrote his quartet as a “mere amusement,” but it’s a polished work of a mature genius infused with lyricism and inspired by past masters, especially Bach and Beethoven in its fugal finale.
