This musical banquet closes the holiday weekend in grand style. A quick, quirky trio by Philip Glass fascinates – then vanishes. Max Bruch’s lyrical Piano Quintet, one of his few chamber works, weaves a delightful spell surprisingly reminiscent of Mendelssohn. In conclusion, Beethoven’s sublime E-flat Major string quartet Op. 127, a work of luminescent beauty and genius, evokes deep gratitude for the twin gifts of life and art.
