Jean Sibelius String Trio in G minor
Mindaugas Urbaitis Bachvariationen I for four violins
Antonín Dvořák String Quartet No. 12 in F major “American”, Op. 96
One of the concert’s most interesting works comes from the contemporary Lithuanian composer Mindaugas Urbaitis – a piece for four violins on the theme of J. S. Bach’s solo violin partita No. 2 “Ciaccona”. Alongside this Baroque piece with a modern touch comes a melodious Nordic string trio from Jean Sibelius, which demonstrates the composer’s transition from Romanticism to a more contemporary tonal language.
Antonín Dvořák’s string quartet No. 12 “American” with its engaging melodies and fresh rhythmic alertness makes for enjoyable listening in a time of Christmas anticipation.
