OFF THE BACK OF OUR 2022 VISIT TO SALE, WE RETURN WITH A PROGRAM FEATURING A SELECTION OF MELODIC AND RHAPSODIC MUSICAL GEMSThis concert opens with Mozart’s String Quartet in D minor—intensely personal in its expression, it features moments of intimately sublime sorrow which give way to bursts of playful radiance, showcasing this incredible composer’s gift for melody. Following Mozart is Australian composer Nigel Westlake’s Sacred Sky, commissioned by the ASQ and inspired by the seascape paintings of Westlake’s late sister Kate.
Finishing this concert is Fanny Mendelssohn’s String Quartet in E-flat Major. This extraordinarily stunning, dreamlike composition is one of the earliest known string quartets written by a woman, and its rousing finale is the perfect conclusion to this performance.
