NEPACMS Presents: Sensational Strings
Thursday, January 11, 2024 (7:00 PM - 9:00 PM) (EST)
NEPACMS is thrilled to present its most ambitious program yet, pairing the sublime Brahms Second Sextet, a masterpiece exuding elegance and rich lyricism, with Tchaikovsky’s Souvenir de Florence, a bright and vigorous composition for string sextet, reminiscent of his renowned ballets. Over several years, Tchaikovsky painstakingly sketched, worked on, and reworked Souvenir de Florence, and expressed that composing for a string sextet is “terribly difficult…it seems that rather than writing for six voices, I am, in essence, composing for the orchestra, and only then arranging it for six string instruments.” Indeed, these magnificent string sextets will fill the venue with resonances like an orchestra!
