LIADOV 8 Russian Folk Songs, Op. 58 PILLS Serenade for wind quintet (1967) HAAS Wind Quintet, Op. 10 (1929) VERDI String Quartet in e minor (1873) (arr. by Mordechai Rechtman)
This program features a quintet by Czech composer Pavel Haas, written very much in the style of his teacher and fellow Moravian Leos Janacek. One of Haas' orchestral works will be played later this season at Carnegie Hall. While not performed as often in this country, he is highly regarded and his life was abruptly cut short by his death in Auschwitz in 1944.
The other featured work on the program is the arrangement of opera composer Giuseppe Verdi's String Quartet by bassoonist Mordechai Rechtman, former principal bassoon of the Israel Philharmonic.
We hope you, your friends, and colleagues will be able to join us. A champagne reception follows the performance, and if you wish to have dinner in the historic surroundings (Martin Scorcese filmed "Age of Innocence" in one of the parlors), you may do so by calling the club, (212) 475-3424. Just tell them you are attending the Sylvan Winds concert.
If there are others whom you think may be interested, please forward this reminder.
For ticket reservations, please call (212) 222-3569.
