Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival
Dvorak String Quintet
Alan Gilbert makes his first appearance of the season playing violin in Dvořák’s String Quintet in E-flat Major, which includes an additional viola (the composer’s own instrument) and dates from Dvořák’s time in America. The program also spotlights another 19th-century Czech composer, the cello virtuoso David Popper—whose exquisitely tender Requiem features the unusual scoring of three cellos and a piano—and it includes the wonderfully rich (thanks to its two cellos) String Quintet in F-sharp Minor by the early-20th-century German composer Walter Braunfels.
