American violinist Philippe Quint gives sparkle and polish to each note of Mendelssohn’s immortally vibrant Violin Concerto on a program that also features a luscious arrangement for orchestra of Brahms’s Piano Quartet in G minor that abounds with memorable melodies. Bach’s Ricercare from Musical Offering, with its dialogue of overlapping voices, creates a brilliant and complex musical structure, and brings the inventive genius of Bach to the forefront.
Bach, arr. Webern Ricercare from Musical Offering
Mendelssohn Violin Concerto
Brahms, arr. Schoenberg Piano Quartet in G minor
