The quartet then comes together for Mozart’s crystalline and late D Major string quartet, K.499, a work which is about as perfect as a piece of music can be. The program ends with another late work, Shostakovich’s alternately elegiacal, whimsical, and cynical string quartet #11.

    Niccolò Paganini: Moses Variations for two cellos

    Mozart: String Quartet in D Major, K.499 “Hoffmeister”
