At this year’s Stradivari Anniversary concert the St. Lawrence String Quartet will be joined by violist Hsin-Yun Huang for a performance of Mozart’s hauntingly beautiful G-minor string quintet. The Mozart is paired with a suite of dances by Czech composer Erwin Schulhoff, and the concert will close with one of Beethoven’s final profound statements. The combination of five magnificent instruments plus five wonderful musicians promises to propel you into the Strad-isphere.
