Violas ruled the day when the Society for Chamber Music in Rochester wrapped up the season with two German masters. On the program: a Mendelssohn quintet that he did not like very much, and a stormy Beethoven quintet with an instrumentation that he never duplicated. The concert was recorded in the CityView Ballroom at the Strathallen on Sunday, May 12, 2019.
Mendelssohn: String Quintet No. 2 in B-flat, op. 87
Beethoven: II. & IV., Viola Quintet, op 29, “Storm”
