HSQ Chamber Series: From Prussia with Love
Unitarian Society of New Haven
Hamden, CT
Share this event:

Join the HSQ at their first concert of the 2018-2019 season as they explore two Czech masterworks, Antonín Dvoáks American String Quartet, and Leo Janáeks Intimate Letters. Dvoáks quartet, composed during a visit to the United States in 1893, overflows with joyous, folk-inspired melodies and imagery from his travels across the US and is one of the most cherished quartets in the repertoire. Leo Janáek, known for his inventive, colorful harmonic language and declamatory style, spent the later part of his life infatuated with the much younger Kamila Stösslová. While the true depth of their relationship is unknown, over 700 letters between the two survive, and Janáek turns his passion for his muse into musical genius in the second string quartet, titled by the composer Intimate Letters. The work, meant to be a reflection of his relationship with Kamila, is described by the composer as, a work as if carved out of living flesh. I think that I wont write a more profound or truer one.

Leo Janáek, String Quartet No. 2, Intimate Letters (1928)
Antonín Dvoák, String Quartet in F Major, Op. 96, American (1893)
