"The transparent textures of the songs, coupled with the players’ exquisite sensitivity, allowed the sublime melodies to shine forth with the accompaniment well in the background. All the instruments shared in the melodic line, either in solos or duets."

Boccherini: Night Music of the Streets of Madrid, Op. 30, No. 6
7:00 - 7:30 pm, Free to ticket-holders.
The Miro Quartet, which first appeared on a CMSD concert series in 2006 as winners of Chamber Music America’s Cleveland Quartet Award, is now well-established in their prime as one of the leading string quartets of the world. In this concert, they join Montrose Trio cellist Clive Greensmith for a concert built around Franz Schubert’s immortal Cello Quintet in C major – a must-hear on any major chamber music anniversary season.
Also on the program, the delightfully evocative Night Music in the Streets of Madrid, a cello quintet by Luigi Boccherini that borrows techniques from the Spanish guitar to conjure the ethos of the composer’s adopted home. Rounding out the program is the intensely programmatic masterpiece, Kreutzer Sonata, by Czech composer Leos Janacek.
