Saturday, May 28 at 7:30pm
Smith Opera House
Geneva Music Festival

Jinjoo Cho, Geoffrey Herd, violin; Eric Wong, viola; Max Geissler, cello; Henry Kramer, piano

Join us as returning GMF artists celebrate the way musical influence reverberates across the ages. This evening’s works are linked by their shared sources of inspiration, and form a musical network that spans eras and genres. Jörg Widmann’s “Hunting Quartet” acts as a linchpin, quoting Schumann’s programmatic work Papillons, and offering a twenty-first century take on Mozart’s String Quartet No. 17 (“The Hunt”).

W.A. MOZART: String Quartet No. 17 in B-flat Major, K. 458 “The Hunt”

ROBERT SCHUMANN: Papillons, Op. 2

J​​ÖRG WIDMANN: String Quartet No. 3 “Hunting Quartet”
