21st annual Fredericksburg Chamber Music Festival

Monday, January 26, 2009 - 9:00pm

In 1830, Mikhail Glinka took a three-year health sabbatical to Italy, where he met Donizetti and Bellini. Their brilliant and sentimental opera arias inspired Glinka's Pathetique Trio in D minor, which opens the second of our three programs from the 21st annual Fredericksburg Chamber Music Festival. Also on the program is Franz Schubert's only string quintet, augmented not by the customary second viola, but by a second cello. Composed just two months before his death in 1828, the quintet is considered an apex in the classical chamber repertoire.
