The Schumann Piano Quintet, Borodin String Quartet No. 2, and Webern Langsamer Satz were all written as an expression of love for their wife: Clara Schumann is the dedicatee of the Piano Quintet and gave its first performance, the Second String Quartet was dedicated to Borodin’s wife as an anniversary gift 20 years after being engaged, and Webern was inspired to write the Langsamer Satz after falling in love with his future wife. Unlike the atonal and twelve-tone works Webern is most known for, the Langsamer Satz is a deeply romantic and sentimental work synonymous to the style of Schumann and Borodin.

On Sunday, March 17, NEPACMS is pleased to present a special encore performance (though slightly altered) at the White Haven Area Community Library. In place of the Schumann we are delighted to present Dvořák’s iconic “American” String Quartet. Call the White Haven Area Community Library at (570) 443-8776 early to reserve your seat at this unique and intimate space!
