Arianna String Quartet: Octet!
The Arianna Quartet welcomes the internationally acclaimed St. Petersburg String Quartet to St. Louis for a special evening of great music among friends. The Arianna Quartet kicks off the concert with a performance of Beethoven’s robust Quartet in E-flat Major, Op.74, the “Harp”, with the St. Petersburg Quartet following in a performance of Shostakovich Quartet No.9, a deeply personal and reflective work of immense scope. To cap the evening, the Arianna and St. Petersburg Quartets take the stage together for a performance of Felix Mendelssohn’s jubilant String Octet. This performance features a pre-show talk with the Arianna String Quartet. Please arrive 50 minutes early for the pre-show discussion.
