Sensational Strings (Bloomsburg)

January 13 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$15 – $20

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!
