Encounter III

Romantic Revolution/Moscow to Montmartre, 1840–1900

Celebrated scholar and Mendelssohn biographer R. Larry Todd makes his eagerly anticipated return to Music@Menlo to lead this summer’s third Encounter, examining two fertile decades of European chamber music—the 1840s and 1890s. He will focus on the German Romantics Mendelssohn, Schumann, and Brahms and the creative French, Slavic, and Russian responses of Debussy, Josef Suk, and Rachmaninov. Pivoting between the middle and end of the nineteenth century, Encounter III explores the full range of continuities and discontinuities in the rich tradition of chamber music.
