CONCERT THREE: THE OMNI QUARTET, FROM FOUR TO MORE

Sunday, February 25, 2018   3:00 p.m.

Dunham Tavern Museum Barn, Cleveland

Close Encounters Omni Quartet

PROGRAM

Mozart  Adagio and Fugue in c-minor, KV 546

Mozart  String Quartet in G-major, KV 387

Brahms  String Sextet No. 2 in G-major for two violins, two violas, and two celli

The spectacular Omni Quartet will be performing two lively Quartets by Wolfgang “Wolferl” Mozart and one wistful Sextet by Johannes Brahms, composed shortly after his engagement ended to singer Agathe von Siebold. Brahms encrypted her musical initials throughout the piece, telling the story of love lost and sweetly remembered as only he can. The Omnis will be joined by fellow Cleveland Orchestra members Isabel Trautwein (viola) and Paul Kushious (cello).

Our third concert in this season’s Close Encounters chamber series will be performed at the historic Dunham Tavern Museum, 6709 Euclid Avenue in Cleveland. A complimentary wine & dessert reception accompanies each performance. Be sure to reserve your seats soon!
