Finale: Metamorphosis

Prelude performance by Pelia Quartet · 6:30 PM

Part of

An orchestra transformed into a trio, a string orchestra to a septet, and a quartet to a string orchestra—these powerful works not only transform themselves but transport the listeners. The merry pranks of Till Eulenspiegel are followed by the stirring postwar elegy of Metamorphosen in two of Strauss’s most ingenious works, and we close the festival with Schubert’s dramatic and powerful String Quartet re-envisioned by Mahler as an even more dramatic and powerful symphonic work, performed by an all-star string ensemble.

Join us for the Musical Prelude with Pelia Quartet for their performance of Ravel’s String Quartet in F Major
