January 13th, 2019
Mendelssohn: Quartet in D Major, Op. 44, No. 1
Arauco: Quartet No. 3 [Philadelphia Premiere]
Brahms: String Sextet in G Major, Op. 36
 
The Ying Quartet’s trademark virtuosity and versatility is showcased in a program that features Mendelssohn’s joyful D Major Quartet and Brahms’s Sextet in G Major—a richly romantic work that anticipates the power of the composer’s great symphonies. Known for its commitment to the leading composers of our day, the Ying also presents a Philadelphia premiere by Ingrid Arauco, the Haverford professor and composer who has been lauded by Fanfare for her “enjoyable, tonal soundscapes.”
