Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin (Series)

Produced by The WFMT Radio Network

Most recent piece in this series:

EXP 20-28 E: Mendelssohn, Schumann & Brahms String Quartets, Episode 4, 4/17/2020

From The WFMT Radio Network | Part of the Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin series | 58:59

Exploring_music_logo_small This week we focus on one of the most delightful and storied chapters of the string quartet's history, centering around the works of three romantic composers—Mendelssohn, Schumann, and Brahms. After 50 years of fantastic string quartets from Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, and Schubert, the well seemed to be drying up—young composers just weren’t writing string quartets. Operas and piano pieces, yes, but not string quartets, and then to save the day steps in Mendelssohn, Schumann, and Brahms! Bill starts the week off with the double quartet (octet) from 16-year-old Felix Mendelssohn. Felix’s sister, Fanny Mendelssohn, said she felt that she was lightly carried up in the air with this string octet. Episode 4 of 5.
