Society for Chamber Music in Rochester: German Masters - 8/30/20

SCMR2020-5.jpg

Violas ruled the day when the Society for Chamber Music in Rochester wrapped up the season with two German masters. On the program: a Mendelssohn quintet that he did not like very much, and a stormy Beethoven quintet with an instrumentation that he never duplicated. The concert was recorded in the CityView Ballroom at the Strathallen on Sunday, May 12, 2019.

Beethoven: II. & IV., Viola Quintet, op 29, “Storm”
