Carte Blanche Concert III

Schumann Quartet

The Schumann Quartet makes its festival debut with a thoughtful survey of the string quartet literature. The program brings together music from a diverse spectrum of voices and spans German Romanticism, early modernism, and American minimalism. This mosaic of musical styles is held together by the timeless music of J. S. Bach, via Mozart’s arrangements of fugues from The Well-Tempered Clavier.
