Of Note for Fri., May 13, 2016: Mendelssohn's String Quartet

Dedicated to the Crown Prince of Sweden, Mendelssohn's Quartet in E Minor is arguably his most popular, showcasing a style that is complex in urgency. Written during the composer's honeymoon, the quartet is reminiscent of Mozart and an excellent example of Mendelssohn's move into a more matured understanding of his work beyond that of a young progeny.

Catch the piece in its entirety rendered by the Cecilia String Quartet, 11 to noon on KUAF.
