About the Concert:
Mendelssohn On Fire features Jeffrey Kahane, piano; Arnaud Sussmann, violin; David Finckel, cello; and the Escher String Quartet (Adam Barnett-Hart, Aaron Boyd, violin; Pierre Lapointe, viola; Brook Speltz, cello).
Mendelssohn’s dazzling first trio raised the excitement bar for all piano trios to come. Before listeners rise to their feet at the finale’s conclusion, they’ll be left breathless by Schubert’s and Mendelssohn’s turbulent string quartets. Mozart’s sublimely meditative Adagio briefly breaks this program’s whirlwind pace before the fleet-fingered Mendelssohn has the final word.
