Saint John String Quartet, featuring the young Felix Mendelssohn’s String Quartet Op. 12
The ever youthful Saint John String Quartet will brighten your February with a concert centred around the String Quartet Op 2 by the then youthful and ever romantic Felix Mendelssohn. Also on the program is a String Quartet by Mozart and a modern wedding suite by the Canadian composer, Glick. Glick wrote this suite when he was a youthful 24 and continued to compose for another 44 years. But both Mozart and Mendelssohn retained a genuine youthful compositional style, with both regrettably dying in their 30’s.
