Blessed with a loving family, a thriving career, and all the talent one could ever hope for, Mendelssohn was among the most fortunate of the immortal composers. In this program of glowingly optimistic music, we find Beethoven at his wittiest, the melancholy Chopin in a pleasant mood, and Mendelssohn contributing three of his sunniest creations. 

 

Beethoven Variations in E-flat major for Piano, Violin, and Cello, Op. 44 (1804)

Mendelssohn Andante and Allegro brillant for Piano, Four Hands, Op. 92 (1841)

Mendelssohn Sonata in D major for Cello and Piano, Op. 58 (1843)

Chopin Ballade in A-flat major for Piano, Op. 47 (1841)

Mendelssohn Quintet No. 2 in B-flat major for Two Violins, Two Violas, and Cello, Op. 87 (1845)
