    Known for dazzling audiences with confident playing and genuine enthusiasm, the young French musicians behind the Modigliani Quartet bring a stylish precision to this evening’s program. The Saint-Saens, with its lively folk song arrangement, is a showcase for ensemble’s grace and musicality.  Mendelssohn’s quartet was the last major piece completed before the composer’s death and resonates with love and mourning, written following the death of the composer’s sister. Mozart’s Quartet in D Major was composed for the King of Prussia and remains one of the composer’s most popular works.
