Music@Menlo’s 2017–2018 Winter Series culminates in a dramatically varied program performed by the sensational Schumann Quartet in its Music@Menlo debut. The Schumann Quartet, composed of three charismatic brothers named Schumann and the stunning violist Liisa Randalu, enjoys a thriving career in Europe and through its recent engagements on our shores is off to the start of an equally vibrant U.S. presence. Offering delights for music lovers of all tastes, the program opens with Haydn’s Sunrise Quartet and is followed by Bartók’s String Quartet no. 2, written by the composer in seclusion outside of Budapest during the First World War. The program closes with Robert Schumann’s deeply expressive String Quartet in F Major, which was published along with two additional string quartets as the composer’s Opus 41.
