Description

These three chamber works set the stage for this season’s theme of transformation. Ives’ “Revival Service” quartet was written at the turn of the 20th century and includes musical “quotes” from a dozen Protestant hymns. Mendelssohn’s use of a Lutheran chorale in the finale of his second piano trio alludes to his “Reformation” symphony and ushers in a triumphant switch from minor to major. Finally, Messiaen composed and performed his masterpiece quartet while imprisoned in a German POW camp during World War II.
