STRADIVARI ANNIVERSARY CONCERT
Miró Quartet with Rita Sloan

John Largess, viola
Joshua Gindele, cello
with Rita Sloan, piano


ABOUT THIS CONCERT
Our annual Antonio Stradivari Memorial concert reflects the history of string quartets in America. The excellent Miró Quartet salutes a famous predecessor founded by Boston Symphony Orchestra concertmaster Franz Kneisel in 1885. Performing widely in America and in Europe, premiering works by contemporaries like Antonín Dvořák, the Kneisel Quartet became a force in the world of 20th-century chamber music, one whose influence still resonates today. Playing the Library’s incomparable Stradivari instruments, the Miró recreates a concert the Kneisel performed at St. Paul’s venerable Schubert Club over a century ago. This special “salon evening” gathers a charming bouquet, sampling works by Mozart, Franck and Glière, adding a Servais showpiece for cello—a staple of Kneisel programs—and as a top note, Schubert’s “Death and the Maiden."
