TCHAIKOVSKY: Souvenir de Florence, Op. 70

Tchaikovsky spent the winter of 1877 in Florence to recover from the disastrous marriage he had undertaken earlier that year. "I have found here all I need for satisfactory work," he wrote to his brother Modest, and then composed the lovely string sextet Souvinir de Florence as a musical souvenir of his stay.

Artistic Director Anne-Marie McDermott offers a program entirely of charming sonatas by Austrian composer Franz Joseph Haydn, whose highly original style influenced the likes of his younger contemporaries Mozart and Beethoven. Said Vivien Schweitzer of The New York Times about McDermott’s performance of these works, her “characterful playing was notable for its clean articulation, singing lines and eloquent phrasing.”
