Some of the very greatest composers were creating professional-quality works at astonishingly early ages. Rossini was twelve, Mendelssohn thirteen, and Schubert fourteen when each began composing for small ensembles of strings. The results, however, are as fine as the creations of composers three or four times that age. In this program, we’ll sample string quartets by all three young geniuses, with perspective on how they managed to get such quick starts on their future careers. 

Arts in the Afternoon is a series of weekday afternoon concerts and performances designed to transport you out of the ordinary. Enjoy a variety of styles by professional performers in this intimate series. Refreshments are provided as a part of your ticket, so please stay after the performance to talk with performers, reflect on what you saw, and enjoy social time.
