This cmh@home program features the many musical talents of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. The beautiful online concert experience includes Intermission conversations with CMS Artists and Co-Artistic Directors David Finckel and Wu Han and the artists during intermission.

 

This program features Metamorphosen from Richard Strauss, completed in 1945 at the end of WWII in Germany, which he described as, “The most terrible period of human history…” Strauss’ nostalgic tone demonstrates the wistfully remorseful nature of the piece. Mozart’s “Dissonance” Quartet is heard in the second half of this program. Known as the last, and most famous, Mozart “Haydn” quartet, it was written in 1785 as a tribute to his “best friend” Haydn.
