Four Plus Four

  • Omaha Conservatory of Music 7023 Cass Street Omaha, NE, 68132 United States (map)

Two accomplished foursomes interpret two brilliant string quartets: Shostakovich’s brief Seventh, dedicated to his late wife, is one of many moods—from melancholy to ferocious to dream-like—and even the suggestion of a waltz; and Debussy’s only quartet is sensuous, luminous, full of passion and life. And when Four plus Four join forces you’ll hear a masterpiece by 16-year-old boy wonder Felix Mendelssohn that has youthful energy written all over it: his Octet—all gossamer and incandescent and lightning-fast—will leave you quite giddy with joy.
