Summer Evenings Outdoors: Haydn, Mendelssohn, and Schumann

Saturday, July 10, 2021, 7:30 PM at Damrosch Park

Works by three masters combine to illustrate the endless and delightful diversity of chamber music. From the "father of the piano trio" Joseph Haydn we hear one of his most sublime examples; from the young genius Mendelssohn a riveting violin sonata; and from history's most emotional composer, Robert Schumann, the first Romantic era piano quartet that set the stage for Brahms and beyond.
