Four outstanding young musicians from China, Korea, Poland, and Switzerland bring out of four Strads the height and depth of human emotion expressed in the planned program Four Stories, Four Strads. Technical precision and perfect musical instruments finely draw the monumental works that hint at the fragility of life (including Bartok’s ghostly scherzo movement) only to close with the turbulent Brahms.
The history and legend of Antonio Stradivari’s instruments will detailed by Mary Elizabeth Frandsen, associate professor in Notre Dame’s Department of Music. The talk will begin one hour before curtain and is free to ticket holders.
