Mendelssohn: String Quartet No. 5, Op. 44, No. 3 in E-flat Major
Wijeratne: “Disappearance of Lisa Gherardini”
Britten: String Quartet Op. 36, No. 2 in C Major
The program connects past to present with a piece Mendelssohn wrote in 1838 to inspire religious contemplation, Benjamin Britten’s 1946 commemoration of the 250th anniversary of the death of Henry Purcell, and Dinuk Wijeratne’s 2022 true story of the 1911 theft of the Mona Lisa.
Winners of a 2023 Avery Fisher Career Grant and the 14th Banff International String Quartet Competition in 2022, this young dynamic group was founded at the Juilliard School with a mission to “approach the established as if it were new, and the new as if it were firmly established.”
