While this event is open to the public, you must pre-register in order to gain access in person. No walk-ups will be allowed at Longy for performances.
The first of our three tour programs this season features nine outstanding musicians performing works from three centuries. Respighi’s rarely performed Il Tramonto for voice and string quartet is a hauntingly affective work that tells the story of two lovers and their tragic fate. Rene Orth’s You Shattered My Deafness incorporates text by St. Augustine in a dramatically reflective work. The evening ends with one of the most beloved chamber music works: Mendelssohn’s effervescent String Octet, a piece brimming with bustling energy and beautiful melodies.
