The wonderful Shuler Theater is the venue for a concert of all Schubert, arguably one of the most sublime chamber music composers of all time.  One of the handful of the greatest and most universally loved works, the Cello Quintet, will close this program, featuring the fabulous Harlem Quartet with the superb veteran guest cellist, Fred Sherry.  The first half of the concert is devoted to one of the finest works for string quartet, the A minor, subtitled “Rosamunde”, named for the theme in the second movement which is based on Schubert’s music for the play with the same name.  Schubert dedicated the quartet to the iconic violinist Ignaz Schuppanzigh, who premiered this work, as well as many of the quartets of Beethoven.  Four of our Young Artists who have made a yearlong in depth study of the Rosamunde Quartet will perform it and have even named their group after the quartet they so love.
