The Composer's World

Venture deep into the minds of three of history’s greatest composers, through a trio of colorful and characteristic works. Visit Debussy’s misty dream world through his fanciful cello sonata, tap into Stravinsky’s exotic imagination through his milestone ballet about a puppet, and experience Brahms’s ceaseless internal struggle for musical perfection through his intensely emotional Piano Quartet No. 1.

Program

  • Debussy Sonata for Cello and Piano (1915)
  • Stravinsky Petrushka for Piano, Four Hands (1910–11, rev. 1947)
  • Brahms Quartet No. 1 in G minor for Piano, Violin, Viola, and Cello, Op. 25 (1860-61)
