SundayKreisler, February 2, 2014 ~ Kreisler's Birthday

Kreisler and Brahms provide the lyricism and expressive power of romanticism for the season's second program. Kreisler's birthday seems an appropriate time to celebrate a great violinist's foray into composition which began in disguise so that it might be taken seriously!

"The Portland String Quartet performed brilliantly, arguing the composer's case with passion and precision. One couldn't have asked for more persuasive, more unified and more yearningly lyrical playing."
