The Wagner Effect

Prelude Performance by the Pelia Quartet · 2:00 PM

Part of

The Baker-Baum Concert Hall

The complex textures and rich harmonies characteristic of Richard Wagner’s compositions had a magnetic force on the composers featured on this afternoon’s program. From Strauss’ lusciously scored and radiantly colorful Sextet from his opera Capriccio and a string version of Berg’s intense Piano Sonata to arrangements and works in honor of Wagner by his own father-in-law, Franz Liszt, this program is a testament to the dominant force of this Romantic master. The program ends with the rarely heard, lushly exuberant Sextet by Hungarian composer Ernst Von Dohnányi for strings, clarinet, and horn.

Join us for the Musical Prelude with the Pelia Quartet for their performance of Bartók’s String Quartet No. 3 in C-sharp Minor, Sz.85
