Fresh view of energetic work, concert series
BRATTLEBORO- The Brattleboro Music Center’s guest concert series continues Friday, October 19, with a performance of Felix Mendelssohn’s String Octets by the Sarasa Ensemble.
Mendelssohn’s Octet is one of the most adored chamber music pieces in the string repertoire, composed by a very precocious and nimble 16-year-old talent. Rarely performed on original instruments with gut strings, Sarasa offers a fresh view of this energetic work.
The particularly innovative program will include contrasting elements of sublime French Baroque music by Marc-Antoine Charpentier (Sonate à 8). Artists performing will include Rodolfo Richter, Christina Day Martinson, David Wish, and Rebecca Huber on violin; Jenny Stirling and Jason Fisher on viola; and Jennifer Morsches and Timothy Merton on cello.
