Program Notes

May 5, 2022 by
Mozart, Stravinsky and Beethoven aren’t names often seen together in the same sentence. Nor do they often share a program of chamber music, as they do in the Lincoln Quartet's May 16 concert at Guarneri Hall. The outlier is Stravinsky, whose steady output of ballet scores make him an infrequent presence in chamber music. But what might his sense of theater tell listeners about Mozart and Beethoven?

Ludwig van Beethoven held anything-but-typical views on composing for the cello, so much that what was revolutionary in the 18th century would continue to be unlike anything in the 21st century.

Janáček's Pohádka, or "Tale," is based on an epic Russian poem by Vasily Zhukovsky, “The Tale of Tsar Berendyey.” The piece was conceived of as scenes from the story rather than a complete rendering of the tale. Janáček first composed Pohádka in 1910, during a time when he remained under recognized as an artist and battled self-doubt.

The great conductor Pierre Boulez considered Claude Debussy’s 1898 tone poem, Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune (Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun), to be the beginning of modern music. Boulez’ assessment should not detract from our appreciation of Debussy's continual and sometimes radical musical experiments after that groundbreaking piece.

Songs of a Wayfarer (Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen) was Mahler’s first published song cycle. The texts for this four-song cycle were written by Mahler himself, as a loosely autobiographical account of the composer’s failed love affair with soprano Johanna Richter. Richter was a cast member of the opera company in Kassel, Germany where Mahler was Music Director.
