at Gould Rehearsal Hall

Gould Rehearsal Hall

In this lecture/demonstration, the Borromeo Quartet offers a fresh take on chamber music masterworks by revisiting original manuscripts and notations from the composers themselves. The first half of the program features deleted sections from Quartets 1, 2, 5, and 6. In the case of Quartets 1 and 2, so far as we know, these sections of music will be heard in public for the first time. {br} The second half features the original manuscript version of Mendelssohn’s famous string octet. This manuscript is quite different from the version which was eventually published, with notable differences in movements 1, 2, and 4. The published edition was prepared 7 years later.{br} Slide projections and interactive discussions will accompany live performances, with Curtis students joining the Borromeos in the Mendelssohn. Limited seating available.{br}
