“If Music Could Talk” continues with a fascinating compare-and-contrast program featuring the Fin de Siècle Quartet.  This ensemble, composed of highly accomplished players with active international careers, will perform two works from 1905: Anton Webern’s richly romantic, single-movement “Langsamer Satz” and Maurice Ravel’s sparkling string quartet.

The quartet will also play an example of Webern’s later style and give a live demonstration of the difference between gut strings (which were standard until the mid-20th century) and metal strings.
