The Festival continues its Robert Mann Chamber Series, named for a beloved educator, composer, and founding member of the Juilliard String Quartet. Tchaikovsky spent some of his happiest days in Florence, and his Souvenir blends Italian romance with folk flavors from his native Russia; Russian themes also appear in his compatriot Borodin’s Sextet, particularly in the second movement (one of only two movements which have survived!). Mikhail Glinka’s massive influence on Russian classical music cannot be overstated; here, his cheerful and optimistic Trio pathétique showcases the rare combination of clarinet, bassoon, and piano.

Alexander Borodin, String Sextet in D Minor
Mihail Glinka, Trio Pathétique in D Minor
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Souvenir de Florence, Sextet in D Minor, Op. 70
