Celebrated scholar and Mendelssohn biographer R. Larry Todd makes his eagerly anticipated return to Music@Menlo, examining two fertile decades of European chamber music—the 1840s and 1890s. This Encounter’s focus is 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.
